LEAD Albania 2017 Fellows organize a charity activity at the Retirement Home in Tirana

In the framework of education component, LEAD Albania 2017 Fellows held on May 29, 2017, a charity activity at the Retirement Home in Tirana. With the aim of further improving the conditions of the elderly, the Fellows provided seats for the outdoor living environments, as well as a considerable number of flower vases that adorned the premises where the residents of this house spend most of their time. During the visit, Lead Albania participants talked with 54 elderly people staying in the house who welcomed the visit as well as the modest contribution. Some of the elderly said that the best gift for them is the presence of visitors in their place and the pleasure of the conversation with them. This activity aims to contribute to raising awareness for vulnerable categories as well as to enhance community engagement initiatives in Albania.
