2013 aims to bring more elderly into the plan

2012 was a difficult year for the old people's plan although we did manage to provide many elderly people with food parcels and medicinal plants. In 2013, funds-permitting, we plan to return to our regular food-drops and increase the number of elderly relatives of our children who will benefit from this program. As our numbers swell in our schools, so to the numbers of elderly relatives and it is vital that, in these times of food insecurity and crop failure, that basic foodstuffs are available for the whole family, not just the adults, though the children and the grandchildren aswell.

Every three to four months, we plan to invest $2000 in the food parcels, which include rice, beans, sugar, oil, medicinal plants, soups, pastas, salt and other staple requirements. With each elderly adult receiving this parcel, it should be sufficient to see them through until the next installment. With the elderly receiving their food, there is more of the little there is in the household to go to the children, thus filling two sets of stomachs each day.

Happy Holidays to all our donors, past, present and future and thankyou in advance, especially in this time of our Christmas Appeal, which is raising funds for food for the kids in 2013

cheers
