MS Savithti Vaithi the chairperson and the trustees praised the efforts. The reason being they have been receiving lots of donation for food and clothing from different corporates and individuals but none of them have come forward so far to conduct such entertainment programmes which was a new experience to the inmates. Moreover the presence of 15 of us was highlighted for having spent time with the inmates rather than just donating the money.
Feedback from a beneficiary (person or NGOs) that the activity has helped.
Many ladies came up blessed us and said they have never laughed this much in the past few years put together.
The entire event gave us a lot of satisfaction and made us feel that we are privileged to have many luxuries in life, when many people don’t have the basic facilities for their day to day livelihood.
