Volunteering at Bayer Nursing home in Jerusalem
On 15.9.17 our volunteer initiative that took place on the eve of Shabbat consisted of the appropriate theme. Shabbat.
Our volunteers came prepared, equipped with musical instruments, personal grooming material, and arts and craft. They engaged the elderly in fun activities and games.
One of the volunteers used her talents and did hair and makeup for some of the elderly ladies. The effort delighted residents as they enjoyed that unique and special personal attention.
Later many of the residents joined a guitar playing volunteer who led them in songs that delighted their hearts and their souls.
The charge nurse asked that we send our volunteers as often as possible, having witnessed the joy that spread among the nursing home residents.
