Challenge

Old people in the Philippines belonging to poor families lacks the amenities for healthy living and they are often sick, depressed and confused. A lot of sickness related to old age could not be remedied simply because of a lack of money from the family. There is a need to provide them with life-support as they await their final journey especially during this time with the Coronavirus pandemic.

Solution

Poor families with elder parents or relatives will be having great difficulty taking care of them by mere reason of financial difficulty. There is a need to provide this type of support in order to assuage the situation of the elderly. We will provide this service by seeking-out the elderly in our project areas and supporting them with food, medicines and other essentials.

Long-Term Impact

The families where the elderly lives will be freed from the financial burden of taking care of the elderly. This will help them improve their social and economic situation at the same time making better the life of the elderly.
