Mr Jyothi Kumar, a wheelchair-bound artist, inaugurated the day’s events in presence of several visiting dignitaries. Many patients and family members performed for the others. The volunteer group called ‘Disha’ performed cultural activities.
The patients talked, exchanged experiences, enjoyed a puppet show performed by Shri Sunil Pattimattam, as well as dances and music before spending some time at the beach. Some said it had been many years since they had the pleasure of seeing the sea.
A group of eleven students from Iowa University in the USA and their two professors were among the volunteers helping the patients and families.
The get-together acknowledged the society’s responsibilities towards people who are confined to home because of disease.
