On December 14, 1990, the UN General Assembly decided to consider October 1 as the International Day of Older Persons.
Therefore, on this very day, representatives of The International Congress Organization “SHIELD” and the “Assalam” Charitable Foundation could not ignore those elderly people who live in the Geriatric House of Mercy. Holy healer Panteleimon. Even though the house is divided into two sections (1st – Yasnaya St., 6, 2nd – Pedagogichnaya St., 24), we visited both. After all, the need for communication in older people is likely to be even higher than in children. Bed linen sets were presented as the main gift, and in addition, sweet gifts and a new issue of the Assalam newspaper were distributed to all the wards at home. It should be noted that all guests were received very warmly, in a warm, almost homely atmosphere.
