Hyderabad, Nov 12 (UNI) It was a day the 67 underprivileged children from Hyderabad Council of Human Welfare and the Government Boys Hostel for Handicapped will not forget.
About 40 street children from Hyderabad Council of Human Welfare from Alkapuri and 27 physically challenged children from Govt Boys Hostel for Handicapped from Nalgonda Cross Roads were taken for the latest Shahrukh Khan film, 'Om Shanti Om' at Vijeatha Theatre in Borabanda, according to a press release here.
The trip was sponsored by the members of Lodge Keys No. 297, a local wing of Internationally well known Freemasonry organisation, and their family members.
''First we were thrilled at seeing the luxury bus, as we had never travelled in such buses. Next came the privilege of watching the new movie along with members of Freemasonry and their families.
This is a wonderful occasion I will never forget in my life,'' said Narender, a physically-challenged boy.
''We could see the joy on their faces. For three hours, the children could forget everything and had the pleasure of watching a premier movie within a few days after its release. Enthused by the overwhelming response from among our members, we would like to repeatedly take up such projects in near future,'' said D Ramchandram, Master of Lodge Keys No. 297.
