Provide food for 35 elderly people in Nepal



Sankhuwasabha Education Scholarship Foundation (SESF) plans to provide food and monthly allowance for fruits, vegetables and other costs to 35 helpless, elderly people (from 55 to 91 years old) residing at Manakamana Bridhashram, an Old Age Home, in eastern parts of Nepal for years.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There are 35 helpless elderly people from 55 to 91 years of age residing at Manakamana Bridhashram, an Old Age Home, Khandbari. They do not get any government support apart from $6.00 per month per person as pension. The amount is not sufficient for them to purchase food, fruits and vegetables, clothing, and medicines. So they are always dependent on charity donation from the pilgrims. SESF will provide them with 100 KG rice as well as USD 36 per year.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project will help collect donations from our friends, relative's charity organizations and provide 10 kg rice and USD 5.00 per person per month. In this way a person will have 120 kg rice and USD 60 per year. The money and the rice will be helpful to solve their food problem. We plan to support them for five years.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project will be able to feed 35 elderly people (78 female and 7 male) from 53 to 91 years old and reduce their hunger and help them save from passing away without food in their last stage of life.
