Chantons l’amour, chantons la joie, chantons la paix, chantons Sai
(Let us sing for love, let us sing for joy, let us sing for peace, let us sing for Sai).
This was the refrain from the children at the Distress Shelter in Forest Side, Mauritius that energized and entertained SSSIO volunteers as they served in the medical/dental screening camp held on July 16, 2022. Here, 31 residents were given medical care, and those that needed further treatment were referred to the local health center. What started purely as a service activity was transformed into a gathering of love as everyone joined together to enjoy the nutritious dinner cooked by the volunteers. The residents confessed that, for a change, instead of adding a day to their life, they had added life to their day.
