Senior citizens have over the years contributed significantly to society. Working hard from an early age to build a better future for their children, they have made great sacrifices to give them the best.
As a token of gratitude and to pay tribute to the elders, the Flacq Elderly watch in collaboration with the Federation Flacq Senior Citizen Association held a ceremony to mark the International Day of the Elderly on Wednesday 4th November, 2020 at the Flacq District Council Multipurpose Hall. Honorable Deepak Balgobin, Minister of Information Technology, Communication and Innovation and Honorable Sudheer Maudhoo, Minister of Blue Economy, Marine Resources, Fisheries and Shipping were present at the event.
The Mauritius Telecom Foundation (MTF) was honoured to participate in this activity dedicated to the elderly. The MTF donated wheelchairs as well as blankets to persons with reduced mobility or bed ridden and to senior citizens of the locality. Mr Jean Daniel Henry (Head of MTF) and Mr Bashir Mahamode (Consultant) were present for the distribution ceremony.
