Winter time is the hardest seasons for those who have to heat the house, to bring the water from the well, to go shopping.
In order to cover more needs of the elderly, a peer to peer group was created. Fifteen volunteers help 15 elderly that can’t attend the center. Elderly volunteer deliver lunches, help in the house, go shopping, pay the bills, buy medicines and most important pay attention to the seniors and their problems.
