            TORONTO: The Pak Seniors Forum (PSF) has joined hands with Better Living Health & Community Services, a leading renowned and recognized major organization with an established excellent track record, tremendous contributions and remarkable achievements, to serve the community. Many other such major groups and organizations are showing great interest and coming forward to work with PSF for the common cause---Serve Humanity In Reality.
            Pak Seniors Forum is supporting and participating, along with its encouraged and recommended observer groups of various communities, in the ‘Happy Healthy & Independent at Home’ event being held on Monday, November 04, 2013, at 10:00 am sharp at Thorncliffe Branch, 48 Thorncliffe Park Drive, Toronto (Where the library is located).
            The co-sponsored program is facilitated by Anna Azaryan, Outreach Assistant, from Better Living Health & Community Services. The main purpose of the event is to enable the participants to learn more about programs and services of Better Living Health & Community Services that will make it easier for the people who care for themselves, their families and others to stay healthy, happy and independent at home.    
            The PSF team will coordinate and extend all possible help to make the event a real success. A large number of community members and distinguished personalities are keen to participate in the event.
            The Pak Seniors Forum (PSF) has made success in caring and healing the painful wounds of the community caused by exploiters, particularly community leaders, and dirty politics. PSF is working hard to restore the trust and confidence of the people and in convincing them to become fully active with the concept---Live and work together---to help themselves and others
            PSF is encouraging and motivating them to participate in all such events and activities which can greatly help in uniting and benefiting the members of all communities. It will particularly help the Overseas Pakistanis to think and work on a common line, for a just cause and to become the strength and powerful voice of all Pakistanis.
            Only this way and through proper awareness, understanding and unity we can help bring a practical positive change in Pakistan and elsewhere.
            With this in view, the PSF team leaders and supporters are busy and would remain busy in future as well in contacting the people of all communities to ensure participation by a large number of people.
