"Hyderabad Arts Festival (HAF) in association with Ohri's group organized the HAF Smiles. Supported by JCI Trends and Star Care Foundation", HAF Smiles is the Annual Charity Program of the HAF, where 300 underprivileged children were given a royal treatment and fed sumptuously.
The event is organized as part of ongoing Hyderabad Arts Festival—Season 5, the "India's Longest Performing Arts Festival". These 300 under privileged kids were brought from various orphanages.
Organizers have provided them a carnival day out that is fun filled with a lot of games, interactive engagement, food, entertainment and much more.
Apart from giving kids a great day, they were also provided with a Power Packed Goodie Bag as a remembrance of the day. The bag they are proud to own, say Ramakrishna, Manoj, Anand, the trio behind the HAF. The bag contains personal hygiene and educational products.
