Children are encouraged to be kind to the sick and elderly by visiting healthcare facilities and hospitals. Children sit with patients, pray for them, talk to them about their families, play games with them, and make ‘Get Well’ cards for them. These visits provide a sense of comfort that medical treatment and nutrition cannot. Anthony Cartz, a nineteen-year-old from Chicago, Illinois, was severely injured in a four-car accident: “My parents work and cannot come see me until the weekend. These children made my day. I played chess with one of them, while the others prayed for my speedy recovery and drew me finger paintings. It was the most fun I have had in the last 6 weeks at the hospital.” These visits help children appreciate the value of genuine concern for those in need, which is at the core of seva.
