Happy Meals for the Elderly

Summary

Our project will provide happy meals to 300 old-age people of very poor farming and fishing families. The elderly are the most deprived especially if they are coming from very poor families. With the little food available, they are of last priority and they remain hungry most of the time. Sometimes they go by with a small portion of rice and salt for the day. They can no longer provide for themselves being too weak and experiencing a lot of ailments.

Challenge

The elderly in very poor families are often neglected and not prioritized in terms of food. Families will provide food first for the children and themselves living the elderly with almost nothing. A warm meal will light up their hearts and improve their health in their twilight years. Less suffering that they will feel means happiness and joy for all around them as they play with children and go about with any activity that they enjoy and that they still can do.

Solution

Providing happy meals to the elderly means satisfaction and happiness for them even in their twilight years. Remembering their younger days with a full stomach is pleasurable and will bring joy all around.

Long-Term Impact

Secure and happy environment for the elderly in their twilight years is already a bonus and blessing for them. The knowledge that they will not go hungry the next meal period will make them contented and happy.
