GRAND LIGHT ASHRAM PROJECT - PANEL OF ADVISORY BOARD MEMBERS
Blessings have the power to change lives, so let us do something that blessings of elders should remain in our lives. Personally I believed that our parents, senior citizen are just like god for us. They are full of wishes and blessings. Remember, they have given their all to us, now it’s our turn to fulfill our duty towards them. According to me today all of us should give love, care and respect to them. Tomorrow, when we’ll old, it will automatically return to us in the same way. So, let us start to make a social environment in which everyone is happy, safe, and secure. From right now let's do something for them together.

It is an honor for me to have a position on the Advisory Board of the Grand Light Ashram.
They support the senior citizens whenever they can and in any way they can. With a dedicated team of volunteers.  
Most young people see their elderly family members as a burden. Because they suffer from pain and illnesses, often through no fault of their own. In need of 24-hour care, financial help, or otherwise. Being young and healthy makes them forget they themselves can end up that way too.
And wouldn’t they love to get the help and the care when they need it most?
Apart from the pain and the illnesses, our senior citizens have a lot to give back. Their wisdom, their knowledge, and life experiences. Think about that for a moment. What would we do without their advice? 
Sometimes hardship in families can make it difficult to provide for their elderly members. 
That’s why I am proud to help the Grand Light Ashram. They provide food, healthcare, and other necessary resources for the senior citizens if others can’t.
But they cannot do it without your help! Any donation will make it easier for this foundation to give support to those who need it the most. And remember, one day, you may wish for their services as well.
