2019 started on a good note with lunch organized for all inmates of Apon Ghar and Sarsuna Home. Towards the end of January, ANAVI team of Kolkata went on a Cruise Trip with few elders from Ramola Bhavan & Apon Ghor over Ganges from morning till noon.
ANAVI team of Mumbai visited the Old Age home looked after by The Little Sisters of The Poor on 18th Jan to play Housie with the elders (their favourite game). When they entered the seating area, a firm & warm handshake of the excited uncle who volunteers to sell handmade flowers doubled their enthusiasm of visiting that day.
Since the devastating effects of Kerala floods in Aug, 2018 left many houses and institutions in ruins, ANAVI through various contributions from Anglo-Eastern offices across India and other countries successfully volunteered in resurrecting the lives of flood affected victims in Kerala.
