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.
A thought that summarises the fundamental belief of Anavi. It was the young Enzo, sixteen year old son of Mrs. and Mr. Cremers who said it better than we could have ourselves.
The Cremers family along with Capt. Vinay Singh was in Kolkata during the last weekend of September to visit the various institutes that Anavi has been working with.Six institutes were covered during their stay here.
On the eve of Anavi’s 9th birthday, Anglo Eastern Ship Management, Kolkata organized a blood donation camp for Child Cancer Society. We are pleased to appraise you that the camp turned out to be a grand success with 94 donors including our Fleet Director Mr. Maneesh Pradhan attending the Camp.
Venezia and I visited Jyothis Care Centre at Taloja on Wednesday, 13 th June, 2018. We were welcomed very warmly by the Sisters and the inmates, who were eagerly expecting us. The care centre is located in 1 acre land and is neatly maintained.
“Mita de apni hasti ko, agar kuchh martaba chahe Ki dana khaak me mil ke gul-e-gulzaar hota hai”
These lines by Iqbal have always been the mantra of life for me, never more so than when training for my first marathon. I remember the conversation clearly when I called my wife from the ship in July 2017.
