Manama, Bahrain (Oct. 2, 2011)—Amid singing and dancing, NYIT students and alumni volunteered their time to mark today’s opening of a new hospital building for the elderly in Muharraq, Bahrain.
The volunteers helped distribute food and water to the elderly, who were excited about the visit, according to NYIT- Bahrain Associate Director of Alumni and Employer Relations Amal al-Dallal. “It’s not everday that the elderly get visits like this,” she explained.
In addition, as local school children were invited to draw the patients living in the hospital, NYIT volunteers assisted the young artists with their task and provided them with gifts at the event’s conclusion.
