For lonely hearts of Kandivali village elders, ‘Main Hoon Na’

A dedicated pool of volunteers will respond to distress calls where they will listen, guide, counsel on various topics and help the senior citizens in any emergency situation like arranging ambulances, hospital admission, etc. Ravi Kalra, who is spearheading this initiative from Thakur Village, said, “Mostly, we have senior citizens whose kids are living abroad or outside Mumbai. There are more than 1,100 such couples in Thakur Village and Lokhandwala complex. We learnt that during late hours if a senior citizen was injured or ill there was nobody to take care of them. So, we have now formed an organised group to help each other. Seniors, whose kids are not with them, feel alone and they require some emotional help.”
