    Hi All:

    I hope you are doing great!

    Based on many inputs from the Jan 1st team of hospital visit,i have decided to make another event on Feb 14th for food /essentials distribution for labors in Bur dubai.

    The hospital visit is fresh in my mind and i wouldnt forget that personally. The entusiasm of patients & participants was amazing!

    I know that Feb 14th (valentines) may not be the right day for many of us to participate in the upcoming event.

    Having taken into account the valentines bash,we have planned the event from 5-6:30 p.m max on Feb 14th.I think we should be able to get in atleast 15-30 mins of from our valentines.

    I can quote somebody from the group who said this to me-Volunteering should not be a one time activity only on Jan 1st .It still reverberates in my mind!!!

    you can check the event registration page at http://www.meetup.com/volunteerdubai/events/161064472/.

    we have just couple of spots.

    Hi all,
    I missed this event because I was waiting in the wrong place. I went to the ambulance entrance and I was there for 20 minutes. I asked at the counter if they knew of the group but of course they didn't. In the rush I left my phone at home so I couldn't contact anyone.
    While I was waiting and seeing the ambulance arriving and people on stretchers I thanked God for my Health and how important is to be healthy and well...some times we get caught up in our little dramas and we forget to look at the bigger picture...If we have Health, we can achieve and conquer anything...
    Let's be thankful for our Health and count our blessings everyday. Namaste

    I was a bag full of emotions when I left, thanking god for a happy n healthy family, having friends to talk to, being able to volunteer, freedom to move around, smile, take, think, some things which we take so easily for granted. Thanks Kumar for organising the visit. We did take some pictures, appreciate if they could be shared. God bless all of you

    Today's event was very humbling and it definitely made me appreciate my own health as well as the physical suffering and loneliness that others might be feeling.
