[India], Oct 8 (NewsVoir): Philanthropist Sarvesh Tiwari has organised free pilgrimage for 51 elderly people of Pahadpur.

"Once people retire from all their social and personal responsibilities, they find time for themselves and spend it in doing things that they desire. Elders look forward to visiting holy places. This free pilgrimage was organized with a sole thought of bringing happiness to our elderly people. Going forward I will be organizing more such free pilgrimage tours to Hindu as well as Muslim pilgrimages," said Sarvesh Tiwari.

A total of 51 elderly aged between 55 - 65 years went on this pilgrimage tour. Sarvesh Tiwari, himself accompanied them along with a team of five volunteers to ensure their safety and comfort. The pilgrimage saw the participation of elders from the economically weaker section as well.

"I wanted to visit Varanasi for a long time but couldn't because of financial constraints. I am thankful to Sarvesh ji and his team for organizing such a wonderful tour. It is because of him that I could visit these places as I do not have the financial strength to take such tours by myself," said Rudal Ram, one of the pilgrims.

Son of Anand Tiwari and Usha Tiwari (Pradhan), Vishnupur, Matiarwa village, Sarvesh has led some crucial initiatives for the society. He spearheaded the cause of justice for Nirbhaya as General Secretary, Nirbhaya Jyoti Trust. He came forward and adopted the families of Uri martyr, Naik Sunil Kumar Vidyarthi. (NewsVoir)
