Actor Chitrangda Singh today visited the Blind Relief Association, an organization focused on providing education and training to the blind and visually impaired, with a goal of enabling them to realize their potential and be self-reliant. The actor was keen to spend time this festive season, with visually impaired children, who may not be able to enjoy the beauty of lights that mark this festival through their eyesight and celebrate it with them in other ways.
Pullman & Novotel New Delhi Aerocity generously donated 150 food hampers as a tea-time treat adding a delicious note to the festivities.
Commenting on her interaction with the children, Chitrangda Singh said, “As a Delhiite, I have often visited the Blind School Diwali Bazaar and am always impressed with their immense talent, and the beautiful products on display. I wanted to spend some time with the children and am happy we could do this for Diwali. I thank the Blind Relief Association, Pullman New Delhi Aerocity and iTV Foundation for helping put together a wonderful evening.”
Also present at the event was Mrs. Aishwarya Sharma, Chairperson, iTV Foundation, an organization committed to enabling people and communities to support relevant causes. The foundation also distributed handmade chocolate packs to the children.
The activities showcased the immense talent of the organization’s volunteers, who are famous for their annual Blind School Diwali Bazaar in the city, where the prime attraction of the entire bazaar is the beautiful products such as candles, diyas, paper and cloth products made by the visually challenged trainees and workers of the Blind Relief Association.
Chitrangda joined the members of the association in fun activities such as Ghazal session, Gift Paper wrapping and candle making.
General Manager of Novotel New Delhi Aerocity, Ajay Sampige, who was present at the event said, “Diwali is an important celebration in the country, and we believe that everyone should enjoy the festival. We at Pullman & Novotel New Delhi Aerocity, are happy to provide this tea-time treat to the children of the Blind Relief Association as an added element of delight to the evening.”
