AUS students pay tribute to the elderly
Twenty-six students from American University of Sharjah visited the elderly under the care of Old People's Home in Sharjah on September 29 on the occasion of the International Day of the Elderly. The students brought with them gifts and sweets as presents for the elderly. Joining students from other educational institutions, the AUS students participated in hosting a program which included musical performances and other fun activities to entertain the elderly.
"During our visit, we, as a group of volunteers distributed gifts as a gesture of kindness to the elderly. I felt overwhelmed as we managed to draw smiles on their faces" Samaa Mustafa, a student majoring in management.
"The thoughtfulness of our students and their respect for the elderly are values that will guide them throughout their journey in life. Spending time with the elderly helps our students understand how wisdom grows within a person and how to value the contributions of the senior members of our society during the height of their careers" said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students.
The visit was organized by the Office of Student Affairs' Community Services Division.
