The elderly women are not having any work and also their age / health not permits to work in the agricultural fields. The Older Persons from Pasupula village, Kurnool Mandal have been identified by the SERUDS as part of regular field activities. The elderly women do not have timely food from their families. Some of elderly persons do not have children too. By seeing this critical juncture we provide monthly food groceries to 20 elderly persons.

This micro project provides monthly groceries to five elderly persons for a year, who are neglected by their sons & daughters. The monthly groceries we provide are Rice, Dhal, Hair Oil, Cooking Oil, Biscuits, Bathing Soaps, Detergent Soaps, Species, Onions, Vegetables, etc. With this monthly groceries destitute elderly women are having food regularly by cooking themselves with out depending on some one. They are living with dignity and self confidence. Their health levels have been increased.
