Mother's day present
The elderly has been receiving meals during the weekends thanks to our volunteer who distributes a lunch at the elderly homes. We are very aware on how a balanced meal avoids malnutrition and other health problems. Our organization prepares different menus for each day. Nutritional meals improves their energy, their quality of life of them.
On May 8, 2016 was Mother's Day and 22 participants received a present bag which included a towel, a soap, a robe, shampoo and conditioner, deodorant, tooth paste and brush. They were very happy to receive it besides the meal. Some of the participants said that it was the first present they received early that day. We were happy to share a something that shows that we care.
The Case Manager drove three (3) participants to medical appointments. This service is provided to those who do not have someone to take them to the appoitment or because of the lack of transportation. The Case Manager also went to some government offices to help seven (7) participants in the process related to the food coupons and health plan documentation.
One of our male participant celebrate his birthday during this period. A small present was given to him which included some basic necessities (towel, body wash, shaving foam and razors).
We appreciate a lot the support of our donors who can make possible that we continue providing these services.
