A testimonial from Martha Galdamez, a Spanish-speaking Seniors’ Group participant:
One of the main things I want to let you know is what CultureLink means for me. Well, CultureLink is information, guidance, care, contentment and engagement that touch the seniors´ lives in a positive way.
By sharing and socializing with the Seniors’ group at this organization, our souls rejoice. Dora Ines and her team of volunteers make every single moment enjoyable, which results in great benefit to our physical and mental health.
We are thankful to belong to CultureLink because, in the middle of the isolation due to the Covid-19, they have been our company. They have met most of our needs in psychological, recreational, and social terms; even, we have been benefited from a weekly donation of veggies, document translation, online banking support, information from the government and health authorities etc. To have a virtual room, through the weekly meeting via zoom, has been a relief as we have the chance to see again most of our faces and to enjoy our songs, poems, stories and experiences told in our own voices.
We celebrate to be part of this amazing program that Culturelink created to support seniors without limits.
