In Moldova, according to the National Social Insurance Company- the number of pensioners at 1st of July 2015 was 673.5 thousand persons or 10.6 thousand persons more compared to July 1, 2014. Approximately 76% of all pensioners are old age pensioners.

That’s why elderly are a vulnerable group of society in terms of exposure to poverty risk. The poverty rate for this population was 12.8% above the national average by 1.4 percentage points.
Almost 70 % of older people has no possibility include in their meals with regularity, meat or fish.
Statistics show that last year, every fifth elderly had no money for medicine. Besides lack of money, this category does not have all decent conditions for living, especially the elderly in villages.
Most of elderly that are beneficiaries of our projects are lonely and live in poverty. That’s why Neoumanist Association is providing vital services to elderly: social assistance, medical assistance, hot meals, laundry and bath facilities.
Due to your donations we had the opportunity to help the the elderly in need.
We have also the possibility to Adopt-a-Bunica ! A donation of this amount provided direct funds to an elder to pay for their medical, and food costs for one month.
