Elderly people have lived full and exciting lives and have a lot of wisdom and experience to share. It is truly wonderful when they keep in close contact with their children and grandchildren. And it is really sad when they don’t have anyone to share it all with in their life.
MacPaw is a long-time partner of the Enjoying Life charitable foundation. They dedicate their work to helping the seniors who are living alone or struggling physically or financially. The foundation has many different projects, and we are glad to support some of them.
One of the projects is “Enjoying Life: Lunch” – a chain of booths in different locations in Kyiv providing free hot lunches for Ba and Di. What’s that, you may ask? It’s the cute names kids in Ukraine might call their grandparents. That’s how the foundation refers to those they help, and it indicates how much care and affection go into their daily work.
Our company has supported the project by sponsoring two booths for the “Enjoying Life: Lunch” locations, and so have the macpawians. We encourage our colleagues to volunteer in the locations and to serve lunches to the seniors. By now, almost all of them have probably contributed their time to this good cause.
