Every month since 2012, young adult volunteers from the Pendotiba Sathya Sai Centre in Niteroi, Rio de Janeiro visit the seniors living at the Lar da Esperança nursing home. On 26th January 2019, 13 volunteers spent time with the elderly residents there and distributed snacks they had prepared beforehand. They also played a game where everyone won a gift that included personal hygiene items and other presents. They also sang popular, sentimental songs from years gone by, ending with a prayer. This activity transformed the nursing home into a lively atmosphere, and the senior residents expressed their gratitude with smiles and tears of happiness. The young adults felt inspired that the service was not only for the benefit of others, but also for themselves.
