WORLD MS DAY 2016 was observed on 14th May 2016 at SGS MALL, Moledena Road, Camp area.
Saturday’s leisure crowds at the Mall, plus the audience made it a decent gathering and we were happy with the interest generated at a public place. Chairman Mr JP Banerjee welcomed all listeners to the WORLD MS DAY 2016. He talked about MS & MSSI.
Mrs Sunita Lalwani presented a PPT to explain about MS and the challenges faced by MS persons. This year WMSD theme being “INDEPENDENCE”, two of our MS persons Mrs Jyoti Ronghe and Mr. Amit Bhandari had prepared audio visuals about what independence meant to them and this was played to the audience. The AVs were very informative and appreciated by the public.
Later singer Madhura Gogate entertained all with some motivational songs in her melodious voice and the audience too chorused along. Mrs Asha Merchant made many join in for the 1-minute games she organised.
Mr JP Banerjee felicitated MSPs, Caregivers, Volunteers and Donors as a token of appreciation for their involvement in improving the lives of MSPs.
Our Community Partners BNY Mellon group of volunteers cheered the crowd with a dance along with a popular Marathi song and even obliged the crowd with an encore performance.
The event concluded with a Human Chain where Mall visitors too joined hands and chorused “YES! WE CARE!”
