BSCC Members Visit Elders in Ramallah

Ramallah, Palestine– Members of the Birzeit Senior Citizen Center (BSCC) visited elders of the neighboring city of Ramallah to celebrate “International Day of Older Persons” at the Kofor Ne’meh Resort, in an event organized by the Palestinian Ministry of Social Development.

This event allowed elders of the both communities to join together and bond with one another in celebration. Mrs. Jamileh Aranki, HCEF Representative in Birzeit, described the Center and its various services. Mrs. Aranki also shared her own life story full of sacrifice, love, and building the community, which reflected the stories of many who were in attendance.

BSCC elders joined a school group who performed the Palestinian traditional dance of “Dabkeh”. At the end of the celebration, the elders received gifts and had the lunch together. The entire day was filled with special moments of joy that touched the hearts of everyone who participated.
