On 2nd May, Bhartiya Samaj conducted its Senior Citizens virtual meeting with over 40 participants who enthusiastically thronged the meeting room virtually. It was wonderful to see how our Seniors members have embraced the new technology to meet their other member friends. The guest of honor for the meeting was Hon. Bhav Dhillon Ji, Hon consul of India, NZ who with his kind and humble words acknowledged our efforts in undertaking the initiative to serve the community during COVID 19 situation thereby bringing a positive difference within the diaspora.
In these unprecedented times, foreign nationals stranded in NZ, students, work visa holders who have become jobless/homeless and weekly wage earners are facing major upheavals in their lives. We are helping these people by providing food, transitional accommodation, and the much-needed essentials for them to lead a normal life. Bhav Dhillon Ji spoke highly about the organization and its vision to support the well-being of the community.
The meeting came to an end with Auckland leading singer, Joseph Ji of Creation Group for entertaining our Senior members with his melodious singing as a tribute on the sad demise of the legendary actor Late Shri Rishi Kapoor Ji.
