Without regular supervision, they spend their days sitting or lying on the floor. No distractions come to brighten their days, only cries due to the violent anger that comes from inside these poor souls to break the monotony of the place.
The volunteers were all overwhelmed by what they saw here. They therefore decided to provide moral and material support to these people to give them some dignity. The volunteers now make regular weekly visits.
Clementine, a volunteer from Tours and Clément from Nantes, come twice a week to visit the residents of this home and before long strong bonds are created! The volunteers come from their apartment to play with the residents, to offer them some moments of joy and the warmth of human presence in their lives.
Materially speaking, the association made a first donation on basic goods. Domitille identified the needs and Paul-Henri bought the items needed: new clothes and underwear, games and some curtains to partition the beds. With a little bit of effort and some basic supplies a clear improvement in living conditions was achieved. But much more can and must be done to improve the lives of these people. Last week, the volunteers together with Sister Maguida participated in professional training at a disabled care centre so that they could improve their skills to care for these people as best they can.
To help these people with isolated and lonely disabilities, to help sisters and volunteers and to help volunteers in their activities: we need you!
