A very special health and hygiene camp was organised by the Divine Shakti Foundation and the Global Interfaith WASH Alliance at the Gandhi Ashram in Kingsway Camp, Delhi, in association with the Harijan Sevak Sangh.

It began with fun talks and lectures on #WASH, importance of hand-washing, ending the practice of open defecation and educational videos on #sanitation and #hygiene. The lectures were filled with songs, interactive demonstrations and lots of enthusiastic feedback from the children, a majority of whom were within 6-13 years of age.

It continued with a clean up of the beautiful and historic Gandhi Ashram premises by the children. It included drawing workshop on the theme of cleaniness, hygiene and environmental preservation.

The camp was especially graced and blessed by Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji – Muniji who inspired the children with a spirit of service towards the nation and active contribution towards a #SwachhBharat.

The camp was also blessed by Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati who spoke to children about WASH and the need to prevent our soil, air and water from being polluted by our actions. She was joined by Former US Ambassador Mr Richard Rahul Verma, his wife Pinky Verma, their three beautiful children Zoe, Dylan and Lucy. Zoe impressed the children with her Hindi speaking skills.

The special dignitaries, DSF and GIWA volunteers fed all the children in a beautiful healthy and vegetarian bhandara and distributed bananas and oranges for children to take home with them. There was also a special prizes for the best drawings.

Children sporting GIWA’s Swachh Kranti (Clean Revolution) and Swachh Bharat (Clean India) hats, t-shirts left the event with smiles on their faces, beautiful memories in their minds and love in their hearts.
