Challenge

The main biggest problem is the families are not supporting the elderly people, as they are not working & not earning income. If a poor and destitute old person is provided at least one wholesome meal in a day, she has a chance to face the challenges of her hard life. Seruds has conducted surveys around Kurnool and identified many such elders who need help. Most are homeless, or live in huts but do have means to cook. We provide nutritious midday meals to 30 poor old people from slums every day.

Solution

This micro project solves the problem of destitute elders by providing nutritious hot meals. With this food the destitute elders will not go for begging at bus stands, railway stations and health levels also increased. 30 destitute elders gets a chance to have every day meals with out depending on others. The elders lead happy life with out any hurdles. Elders confidence levels increased.

Old age persons living conditions & life span will increase. 30 old age persons able to eat nutritious food in time with out depending on others.
