As the International Blue Crescent Relief and Development Foundation, we have not forgotten our elders who need to be remembered on Mother’s Day. Sultanbeyli Community Center staff and child beneficiaries visited the Ataşehir Ada Nursing Home and celebrated the Mother’s Day. During the visit, several performances were held by the children and gifts were given to the elders in order to spend happy time on this special anniversary day.
23 children between the ages of 7 and 12, accompanied by their teachers, were specially prepared for this special day, and struggled to keep the memories alive for an unforgettable Mother’s Day. First of all, those who were kept in the room were given flowers and they were in their wishes and celebrated this special day. Then, the theme song "Mother" was played for all the elders who stayed in the nursing home with children's special dance choreography. After dance, children presented flowers to their elders and crowns they specially prepared. Afterwards, it was observed that meeting and chatting more often strengthened intergenerational communication. In addition, the music was played in the environment where the clown was also involved, singed together and had joyful moments. The meeting, which lasted about two hours, ended with a mutual appreciation.
Indicating that they are very happy to be remembered and valued on this special day, the elders expressed their thanks to the children and the IBC for their visit. As children of their destiny drawn on this geography and they are part of this society, they were proud and happy to share their unique wealth with their newly-arrived grandmothers on Mother’s Day.
