On the occasion of Ramadan and Eid Al Fitr, the HCT-Sharjah campuses’ Giving Club showed the true meaning of community spirit by organizing a visit to the Old People’s Home in Sharjah.

Four members of the club were proud to spend time with the elderly and to distribute Eid gifts. The group was made up of two club leaders from the CIS department, Mrs. Hanar Atroshi and Mrs. Reem Abuzayedh, Mr. Adil Hadid and Club President, and CIS student, Hamad Alshamsi.

The elderly residents were very friendly and expressed their happiness with this caring initiative. The staff and managers of the centre also expressed their appreciation to this initiative.

Mrs. Hanar Atroshi said:” It’s very important to develop connections with the older adults so they will not feel isolated, which will have a great positive impact on them.”

Mrs. Reem Abuzayedh said:” It makes a big difference to them to know that someone cares and visits them, and for us its heartwarming to see them happy when we talk to them.”
