Residents of the Golden Age Home and some members of the Western Disabled People’s Association in Lautoka were hosted to dinner by a Lautoka businessman last Saturday during Eid- Al- Fitr celebration.

Afroz Ali, managing director of AJYNK Electrical Limited and his family hosted their guests at their Natabua residence.

“The whole idea on the fasting of Ramadan is basically to love the unfortunate and the poor who are out there in society,” Mr Ali said.

“When it comes to Eid, our family and company strongly believe in helping unfortunate people, the needy and our senior citizens. Celebrating Eid with them gives us more satisfaction.

“We enjoy the true essence of Eid by inviting them home rather than hosting them in a hall. Inviting them to our residence gives them a sense of home belonging,” he said.

The resident nurse at Golden Age Home, Ilisapeci Adivuniwaqa said: “It was really good to bring the residents out. This exposure is very encouraging. We thank Mr Ali and his family for the invitation and our prayers and blessings are with them.”

Shakuntla Devi, 70, who has been residing at the Golden Age home for the last 10 years, enjoyed the treat.

She told Mr Ali: “Son, this is a happy occasion for us. We want to enjoy and mingle with those outside our home because we miss the everyday life.”
