My day started off as a normal Saturday when one of my good friends and founder of Hands4Society, Ayush asked me if I would be interested in spending time and playing with HIV affected kids. This organization that supports HIV affected kids is called “Desire Society” which is in JP Nagar in Bangalore. I felt privileged to be a part of such a noble cause. My other two friends Anusha and Vikram from Black Lotus Bangalore chapter joined us too 🙂 We all distributed chocolates, sweets, school supplies for them. The children played musical chair, sang and danced for us. Many children have no primary caregivers yet they are full of joy and are healthy. They go to school too.
I initially refrained from clicking pictures. But then, I realized these talented and wonderful kids need all the encouragement and love from us. With permission from the organization, I took pictures and urged people to come forward and support this noble endeavour.
Finally, we all went to a nearby slum and spent time playing, dancing with another set of beautiful kids. We gave them sweets, chocolates and crayons! They were so happy and some of them recited rhymes and promised to continue their education too.
Overall, my weekend was filled with joy and love. Let us all educate and sponsor kids 🙂 Kindness is one of the best ways to open up our hearts for a beautiful cause!
