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.
