The poor aged people lost traditional respect & leadership. They are being neglected & many aged persons are suffering with starvation & clothing. Many are harassed & ill treated by their own family members. They have health issues & psychological tensions. Some of the aged persons are on streets begging & living in railway platforms & bus stations. Due to humiliations in the family some aged people are getting suicide. The hapless elderly people need timely food to prevent their hunger.
We provide nutritious meals every day afternoon to these most neglected destitute old age persons. We give Cooked steamed rice, Taar Dhal (Pappu), Vegetable curry, Chutney, Chaaru to 30 poor old age people. These older persons are very happy that they are able to eat in time without begging on the streets and not depending on the sons and daughters, who are not taking care of them. By providing nutritious food to old age people they are healthy and able to see their personal care themselves.
