Khwahish- An initiative of The Social Responsibility Cell, XUB Xavier University Bhubaneswar

The Social Responsibility Cell of Xavier University Bhubaneswar organized its flagship event, Khwahish in association with X-Stage, the cultural committee of XUB, on the 15th of July, 2018. The event was marked by a visit to The Mother Teresa Rehabilitation Centre at Janla which shelters the old, the differently abled, and Tuberculosis and Leprosy patients.

Khwahish upheld the spirit of volunteerism and saw the enthusiastic participation of a large number of students of XUB. For the initiative, usable articles (such as mattresses, pillows, mugs, buckets and dustbins) were collected during The Joy of Giving week and the same were donated to the rehabilitation centre. As a follow-up to this, the members of the two committees organized an interaction with those residing at the centre in the form of a series of cultural events. The students of XUB strived hard to bring a tinge of happiness in the lives of the residents of the rehabilitation centre.  The event concluded with the exchange of pleasantries between the students and those at the centre.
