BENGALURU: It was a morning that embarked on sisterhood pride as the women from Community Service of Bangalore (CSB) took a road trip along with gifts of blankets and food to Mahila Dakshatha Samiti (MDS) on Friday.
A warm welcome awaited the group at MDS, which is led by Smt Saranya Hegde.
As President of CSB, Dr Suchitra Kaul Misra, said, "Today is sisters' day for us after the brothers' day yesterday".
The fact that the two organisations are run entirely by women has strengthened the bond that was formed 15 years ago, Misra added.
Misra conducted a therapeutic music and laughter session for the staff and residents of MDS.
The CSB ladies will be holding their annual Santhe at Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath on 25th and 26th October this year. They will be promoting the food and craft items made by the destitute women members of MDS and other local charities in Bengaluru at the event.
CSB supports MDS as it offers vocational training, emotional support and temporary stay along with psychological counselling to disenfranchised women and children.
CSB is a city based non-profit charitable organisation set up in 1998 by ex-pat, Mae Bar.
The primary aim of CSB is to support charities in the city while also providing a forum for women residents to participate in such services.
CSB currently supports eight charities in Bengaluru that support under privileged girls, mentally challenged, physically challenged, orphaned children and senior citizens.
In its 18th year of running, the organisation has 90 members.
