On different occasions, a group of generous donors, volunteer women and speakers join forces with JMP–L, and assist in organizing various elderly gatherings. These events aim at creating a healthy spiritual and social atmosphere, and at offering joy to those people who live alone and face financial and social difficulties.
Within this framework, an elderly gathering was held on April 28, 2011 on JMP–L premises, to celebrate Easter.
The program included a presentation on a health-related topic, presented by nutritionist Maria Tekeyian. She also provided helpful information to the elderly suffering from chronic diseases and advised that they adopt a healthy diet to avoid complications caused by such diseases.
During the second part of the program, a presentation was given by Rouzanna Salkhanian from the “Loosavortchi Gantegh” (Illuminator’s Lamp) community. Salkhanian talked about the spiritual significance of Easter, and inspired attendees to look for spiritual uplift and have hope.
The surprise of the day was the presence of “Chick,” one of the characters of the “Happy Birthday” group, which entertained the elderly with dances and songs during the Easter egg-cracking game.
Lunch was donated by the firm “Mamig’s Kitchen.” A group of volunteer women helped with the distribution of the food.
The attendees left the event spiritually uplifted.
