We are ready for the older adults

By Douglas McMeekin | Executive Director, Yachana Foundation

We in Ecuador are having to live with the same ups and downs of the pandemic as the rest of the world. As a result, it has forced us to be very flexible. We have not been able to receive the number of older adults from the region as planned. But over the past few months we have had a half a dozen groups of folks come, through the coordination of the municipal government, really just to “check us out” and see if they like the program. And for the government types to see the reaction. The overwhelming response is SI! Even though Ecuador has the highest rate of vaccinations of any country in South America, the Ministry of Health is still limiting vulnerable groups from traveling, but we hope this will be lifted soon. But it has not kept us from continuing to make improvements in the program with our emphasis on sustainability and add activities that will be of a lot of interest to the groups. So once again, I want to thank you all for your continued support of our program. The elderly program is actually more important now than before by providing activities, things to think about and anticipate for a group of people whose mobility has been very limited for too long. I will keep you posted as things develop. Thanks again, Douglas
