This year the ILA was delighted to host the Sneha Kids for Eid Celebrations (Eid with Sneha) on 7th May, 2022. This was a very special occasion as this event has been conducted after a period of 2 years.
The environment was filled with happiness and spread love amongst the kids, parents and coordinators of Sneha along with the bakers and sponsors of Ramadan Bake Sale Drive. The Occasion was a great platform to get Sneha Kids excited and was an opportunity to socialize with friends and family. Making Eid special for children just isn’t about lights and presents, it is also about building a joyful and happy environment around them which was the core agenda of ILA.
The event began with a welcome address by the Hon. President of ILA and handing over of the cheque for funds raised by ILA member Mrs. Ekta Sethi who coordinated the fundraising campaign, along with other bakers present- Mrs. Siji Binu, Mrs. Soni Khadilkar Damle, Miss Bhaarti Passi, Mrs.Kavita Chaudhary, sponsors- Mrs. Nadia Zucchelli from “Let Them eat cake” and Mrs.Elita Kapur from Lanterns.

Mrs. Shipra Dhir Passi, the Hon. President of ILA began the event by giving a Welcome Address and Mrs Ekta Sethi ILA member and coordinator for the OMBC Ramadan bake sale handed over the cheque for funds raised by healthy bakers for Sneha to ILA.
This was followed by a Eid Mubarak Cake cutting with all Sneha kids to mark the eid celebration and welcome them back to the ILA premises. The healthy (no refined sugar /no refined flour) and a beautiful cake was carefully made by Mrs. Ekta and Mrs. Siji Binu on the theme of butterflies who have transparent wings and are special just like our special needs kids who have a beautiful transparent heart.
Soon, Eid Gifts sponsored by Lulu Group were distributed to all Sneha kids which were selected as per their ability and interest especially after consultation with the teachers, parents, and Sneha coordinators.
