Spain, December 2020

Volunteers from Know Thyself as Soul Malaga decided to bring joy to the elderly at a nursing home and thus contacted Residencia Monte Azul. Our original plan was to create gift bags for only the elderly. But then we thought about all the people who work to take care of them and decided to make gift bags for them as well. Each one of us worked from home and it was very exciting to share ideas and see how those ideas materialized into nice handicrafts, like cotton bags filled with lavender, wooden figures, hand-painted cards, and hand-embroidered cotton tissues.

Many gift bags filled with chocolates, sweets, and the various handicrafts made by our volunteers were delivered to the Residencia Monte Azul. The staff of the nursing home was touched and sent “hearts of gratitude” to our organization.
