From PORG with love

PORG International School pupil with a greeting card made for an isolated senior in Britain.

Some of our Year 4 pupils have been taking part in a project to bring a little light into the lives of residents quarantined in British retirement homes.

Many of these people have been cut off from visits by loved ones for over a year now and the project was designed to let them know they are not alone. They are all elderly and may no longer have any regular contact with their grand-children.

The charity aims to bring greetings cards from children in British Overseas Schools across the world to isolated seniors. Although the cards will be distributed anonymously, the children know that their efforts will let others know that someone is thinking of them. 

For the children in our school, it is a small act which develops empathy for others. For the adults they will become, empathy for others can move mountains.
