At average, there is one elderly person in each residing family of Pakistan and they are treated as burden in majority of the families. A Small Christmas Package can make their Christmas special. AWARD will provide Surprise Christmas Packages to 150 elderly people whose hope for happiness and care are vanishing.

The situation of Elderly People in the poverty struck rural areas gives us following haunting facts : 1.Majority suffers from psychotic disorders due to depression and dejection.2.Suffereing from certain diseases by not eating healthy food which is not providing the necessary multi-vitamins needed to survive. 3.Employees' Old age benefits pension money is used by their family members. 4.They have very limited social life. 5.Lack of religious and basic education deprived them from spending time
