The elderly at home
Dear donors, thank you for your donations and your support.
The money you have donated were used to continue our activities and to provide services for elderly in need from Moldova!
Starting May 2016, our Day Care Center remained without one of our main donors, due to the fact that their internal regulations are not allowing to sponsor the same organization more than a certain number of years. This can lead to stopping the day care center's activity or reducing the number of services provided or the number of elderly that can benefit of them.
It was supposed that in time our Government will take the responsibility for elderly. Unfortunately it won't happen in the next years. There are no money in the state budget for projects and activities for elderly. The state can't afford even to pay the obligatory contributions, the pensions are still very small: around 40-50 dollars a month. That is far not enough for basic needs, the elderly are exposed to poverty. That's why our projects are still vital for the elderly.
Our aim is to lift all of our pensioners out of extreme poverty conditions so that they can participate fully in community life while providing them the basic needs: a warm meal, laundry services and the possibility to have a shower. Most of the elderly in Moldova are exposed to poverty. The pensions are barely enough for covering the basic needs, in the same time, most of the elderly do not have possibility to do personal hygiene at home (they do not have running water or hot water and even they do not have money for shampoo or soap).
The money we get from the donations on GlobalGiving, are going directly to support the vulnerable elderly that are coming to the day care center, offering them a warm meal, laundry and bath services.
Our projects aim to provide the basic needs and in the same time the elderly will enjoy variety of activities (we are also buying materials for hand-made activities) while building new friendships and to discuss different topics, psychology, hygiene and aiming to remember the elderly that they can be active citizens in the community. Services provided by Neoumanist Association in all our 4 projects are helping elderly to have a dignified retirement period.
Please consider telling to your friends about the elderly in need from Moldova, share please our GlobalGiving project: “Help 250+ Vulnerable Elderly in Moldova” on your social pages!
