August was an action packed month for our children.
August was an action packed month for our children. It started with the Raakhi celebration, which is a long standing tradition at RAYS. It is one of the most celebrated festivals at the RAYS home and goes on through out the day with special treats made for the children. Followed by this was the celebration of one of the most important days in our country, 15th august. It has been a tradition since many years to conduct a flag hoisting at our home. Patriotism and cleanliness are values which have been inculcated in our children since the very beginning.
This month was also full of outdoor activities for our children. They attended a wonderful play by Tamhankar Theatre Academy, who are also RAYS supporters. They attended two movies, which is a heartfelt gesture made by our friends in the Army. There was also an event held at the home by a popular radio station which the children thoroughly enjoyed.
This month we were also joined by, Pedro. He is a volunteer all the way from Brazil who is staying with us and is spending his time with children teaching them new things everyday about general knowledge, body functions and facts about various countries in the world. The children have welcomed him with such a warm heart and are looking forward to learn as much as they can from him.
With the pleasant change in the weather, the children have also been enjoying their sports time in open areas and have been able to play without the heat affecting them. However, since this time of the year brings a significant change in weather, we have had a few of our children falling sick to various infections and illnesses. Our medical staff worked hard and gave the children personal care and the children are now feeling much better.
We are looking forward to more activities, volunteers and events in the coming month. Keep giving us all your love and support!
