Going forward, our organization understands the plight of our citizens in terms of their financial needs, their health and well-being and also the technological hegemony which are abstruse for our senior citizens in their daily life. As an organization, we help alleviate those problems through proactive sustainability initiatives such as financial donations to various non-profit organizations, free health camps, well-being awareness classes, social activities and managing interpersonal dynamics of our community when needed.
With the help of every Gujarati member in our community, our goals and aspirations can become a reality. We encourage each and every Gujarati family to participate in the ongoing charitable, social and religious activities to help our community.
