With an aim to spread cheer and joy among the senior citizens and give something back to the society, Virat Kohli, India’s Test captain visited Aabhalmaya, an old-age home in Pune. The star batsman met the residents along with Amit Bhosle of ABIL Foundation.
The Virat Kohli Foundation and ABIL Foundation have now joined hands to extend immediate help to Aabhalmaya to end its financial crunch.
Abhalmaya, on Sinhagad Road, was set up by Dr. Aparna Deshmukh and it currently houses 57 senior citizens.
Speaking on the occasion, Kohli said, “People like Dr. Aparna are doing remarkable work by running such a facility for all those elderly, who have been left (alone) by their dear ones. This is absolutely wrong and it is our duty to take care of the elderly members of our family.”
