7 VIR Soldiers Spend Their Day with Elders at “Shanthi Nilayam”

[2012-10-07 11:52:33]

A group of senior citizens livng an isolated life in their old age at Kaithady “Shanthi Nilayam” (State Home for Elders) had a day full of happiness and emotion when the soldiers of 7th Vijayabahu Infantry Regiment (7 VIR) visited those elderly fathers and mothers with gifts last week.

The visit followed another programme on 28th September where the 7 VIR troops spent the whole day at “Shanthi Nilayam” cleaning the Home and its sorrounding. Bushes were cleared and uneven ground was leveled using earth moving machines and hand tractors to prevent water from getting collected and being stagnated.

Marking the World Elders’ Day, Commander 523 Brigade Colonel M.W.A.A. Wijesuriya and Commander 7 VIR Lieutenant Colonel W.M.N.K.D. Bandara together with his troops visited the Elders’ Home on 2nd October and treated all inmates with specially prepared lunch.

Happy adults, although feeble physically in their old age invoked their blessing on soldiers who showed love and empathy towards them on the international day for elders.
