Because one of ASCE at AUB’s aims is to give back, 40 students gathered on the 25th of March to visit Der l Rahme in Beit Meri. The planned activities consisted mainly of serving food and creating a joyful atmosphere for about 200 senior citizens, including those that are poor and medically challenged. They cooked a variety of food such as burgers, Shawarma, chocolate crepes and popcorn.
The volunteers also decided to spark a lively atmosphere through music and dancing. The audience’s favorite was the traditional Dabke, and we all danced in one big circle around the dining area. In addition to that, a couple of our volunteers sang for the elderly. This got them excited, and many of them wanted to showcase their own performances too!
