Focal Point

A smile can make a difference

Eid al Adha holidays in Oman are almost over. For this Eid, the Omani Association for Elderly Friends in Salalah together with football players of Dhofar region visited elderly people in Sultan Qaboos hospital. About 43 people of 60 year and above, received a small gift for their Eid.

But the message of the volunteers behind this gentle action was clear. Despite the fact that you are old and for a short or long time hospitalized doesn’t mean that you are forgotten by the society. The small talks I had with family members and the eye contact I had with some of the elderly people said more than I could ever write in a thousand words. After our visit we all realized that health is the most important and precious thing in life.
