In order to make the most out of it and give us all the option to go home and refresh for the evening official event (which has been placed unfortunately on the same day) we moved together with Sister Isabel the starting time to 9:00 AM. We will meet at 8:30.
There are several parking spaces inside the compound --
approach the guard ROLANDO and tell him you are from INTERNATIONS (Nik) if you come with a car.

Thank you all who participated in the Prep-Up for this event with all your great input and commitments!
In our prep-up meeting we collected some very good ideas and came up with this:

Instead of doing the usual activities which other NGOs do regularly (Dancing, Singing, Classes) we decided to take care of those senior citizens who can not participate in those activities because they can not leave their rooms (see post from Jenny Rodil).

Therefore we will visit those people in their rooms in three or four different teams with some cheer-ups. Choose which team you want to join:

For all teams we need one photographer (either camera or good mobile phone cam) who takes photos and short videos.

1) There is the idea to give free haircuts to the seniors.
For this we need people who can give haircuts and people to assist

2) Another idea is to have a Make-Up session with female occupants who like the idea. We will make a Before/After photo and later print them out and give them as a present to the lady.

3) Clowns/Pantomime
Either as a separate team or as attendants to the other teams

4) Storytelling
Bring short stories and create an atmosphere of "arabian nights" -- maybe with some simple costume, but not necessarily. Important is that you can read a story in a colorful way.

We are open for donations Protected content - see the post by Jenny) either in goods or in cash (which we will use to buy goods). If you want to participate, bring your donation.
If you want to donate, but can't come to the event, connect with me on PM please.

We hope to have many people coming - thus we post this a long time in advance to make sure you can work out your calendar and make time for this lovely activity idea.

For any questions or inspirations - use this activity wall here!

Thank you and best vibes
