Eid with Darul Sukoon

During the last week of Ramzan in 2011, we collected and packed Eid presents  for 185 children at Darul Sukoon. The presents included jewelery, toys, snacks, bangles, watches, handbags, board games and clothes. The children at Darul Sukoon were overjoyed when they saw all the presents and loved them immensely. What was moving for us was the way these children looked up at us, the way they played and danced and with us and the excitement that they had in their twinkling eyes while they opened the presents and showed them off to their friends. Spending a day with these children was more of a self realization for all of us and how we often forget to value the comforts and joys of life that we have. It was truly one of the most moving projects for all of us.
