Sunday, April 7, 2002 Deccan Herald, Bangalore

The 'Annual Residents' Day' of the Asha Jeevan Home for the Aged, located off Bannerghatta Road in Bangalore, was celebrated today with a variety of cultural events organized to entertain the inmates of the home.

The State Bank of India donated a sum of Rs 2,82,105 to the trust towards the purchases of an ambulance, on the occasion.

A cheque bearing the amount was handed over to Ms Sujatha R Bhat and Ms Kalpana Mallya of the Asha Jeevan Home for Aged Trust by State Bank of India General Manager (Development and Personal Banking) Pradeep Awasthi.

There are 28 inmates at the home, set up in March 2000. Apart from providing shelter to the aged, Asha Jeevan takes care of bedridden senior citizens, who are totally immobile.

The institution hopes to accommodate up to 100 senior citizens in future. Ms Sumalatha Ambarish, Ms Tejaswini Ananth Kumar and SBI Circle Development Officer Jhansi Reddy commended the efforts of the trust in providing care and assistance to the senior citizens.
