Darulaceze is a public care home that was established in 1895. When I went there, I saw all the elderly people like little children, innocence in their eyes that shows all they need is love and compassion. Each person at Darulaceze has a different story, but they each have one thing in common: a lack of love. I met people who suffered painful things in their life, faced death multiple times and survived. They are surrounded by others who suffered similar situations, and worse. The people give hope to one another. This is a beautiful thing. I met people with mental illness and psychological problems, yet those people smile and laugh. They are surrounded by people in this small place that's going to protect them until the end.
