DO YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW WHY WE BOTHER 

 

  • We BLISSPALS value greater relationships where elderly are not left behind in our communities.
  • Human beings are social creatures. Regardless of age, our connection to others enables us to survive and thrive. Yet, as we age, many of us are alone more often than when we were younger, leaving us vulnerable to social isolation and loneliness—and related health problems such as cognitive decline, depression, and heart disease.
  • Social studies have indicated isolation among older persons and social disconnectedness are associated with worse physical health, regardless of whether it prompts feelings of loneliness or a perceived lack of social support. Tanzania context is narrated at the end of this document.
  • Fortunately, there are ways to counteract these negative effects.

HOW TO HELP IN COUNTERING THESE NEGATIVE EFFECTS 

 

  • As one of the avenues, here is how we as BLISSPALS are helping and do welcome well-wishers to join hands. 
  • We bring the elderly together for special and lifetime memorable moments with their friends and families and loved ones.
  • We are to set unforgettable experiences and memorable activities that shall rejuvenate the social, mental, physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of our great ones, the great parents.
  • We are to promote social interactions with senior citizens – the elderly and interactions amongst them in one of the best ever elderly-friendly ambiance.

 

WHAT 
  • We are organizing the launch of the FIRST EVER TANZANIA GRAND SOCIAL GET TOGETHER ELDERS EVENT. We refer to it as FUNTIME 4 WAZEE WETU.
  • The special date is Sunday 8th December 2019 from 11AM onwards. This will be at the city and township get away countryside location at “MaTemu Square” Premises in Kiharaka, Mapinga – Bagamoyo. This is near KKKT Spiritual Centre. Transport will be facilitated.
