A total of 76 participants participated in this year’s family trip. The main objective of this trip was to provide an opportunity to the students and their families to spend some quality time together in a different environment away from their normal life.

During this trip families had the opportunity to participate in fun activities such as:

–          Water balloon game

–          Tug of war

–          Ball passing

–          Yoga for mothers

This trip wouldn’t have been possible without the generous contributions from:

Kandooma Holdings, for providing us the beautiful island for free of cost.

MTCC , for providing us the dhoani

Meridian Services Pvt. Ltd, for providing the fuel for the dhoani

Fun Island Resort, for arranging a dhoani to and from Maadhoofinolhu to the big vessel

We also very much appreciate the generous support provided by our first aider,  Mr. Ali Zakariya who was ready to lend a hand anytime we needed help

Last but not the least, the Care Society team for their invaluable commitment to make this trip a success. CARE BEARS….WE DID IT AGAIN!!!

Parliament member Ahmed Mahloof donated MVR 15000 to Care Socciety on 2nd September 2012. According to Mahloof the donation was the price money he received from the DhiTV show, “Tharingerey”.

In the function held at Care Development Center to hand over the donation, Mahloof mentioned that his passion for singing is solely for his own interest and more of a hobby than a profession. Hence, when he received the price money from the show he wanted to contribute the money for a good cause. And he feels happy that he was able to provide such a support to an NGO like Care Society which he believes is doing a great job in the Maldivian community.

Shidhatha Shareef (Director), thanked Mahloof for his generous contribution and thought of contributing to such work done by the NGO’s.

This donation would go directly to the work done by Care Society towards students of Care Development Centre. Hence, the money would be allocated for the camp organize for the students and family trip organized for the families of students, both planned to be held within this month.

Care Society believes that, every donation opens a new door to strengthen and develop the work done by the organization for the vulnerable community in the Maldives.
