Srinagar: A group of Jammu and Kashmir Yateem Foundation (JKYF) volunteers and donors from Srinagar district visited the foundation’s central orphanage, Baitul Hilal, at Jawahar Nagar, Srinagar to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr with the nineteen inmate boys.
Foundation’s central executive member Mohammad Ishaq Sheikh and district representative Srinagar Mohammad Iqbal Beigh had formulated Eid Milan (gathering) programme that included on-spot quiz, mimicry and open talk in order to ensure that children enjoy Eid and express themselves in a festive mood. The children cracked jokes triggering laughter, practiced parody and shared their ideas and demands in the open talk session. A question answer session covering general knowledge was held. The winners were given cash awards on spot.
The volunteers and donors jointly gave away Eid Cash Gift (Eidee) to all the inmates. The children also shared details about their academic activities who are studying in reputed private schools in Srinagar city. After having lunch, the Baitul Hilal Warden Mohammad Ayub led all the children to nearby playground for outdoor sports activity.
Among others, Baitul Hilal employees also attended the programme.
The Orphanage is presently under construction at Jawahar Nagar that was damaged in September 2014 floods. There is an adequate need of monetary and material resources to complete the Baitul Hilal Reconstruction Project at the earliest that will create boarding and lodging facilities for at least 100 orphan children (inmates).
