Provide Food to 200 Elderly People

Summary

This project will provide monthly supply of food to 200 very poor and marginalized elderly people living in 3 villages. With food supply very scarce nowadays with the Coronavirus pandemic and poor farm harvest due to low soil fertility and pest infestation, hunger is felt by the elderly poor and there is a need to provide them with food from outside sources.

Challenge

The Coronavirus pandemic plus extreme weather events and pest infestation to small, marginal farms have caused so much hunger and misery to the rural poor with the elderly mostly affected. They have less strength in order to survive and less opportunity to seek economic activities themselves and largely dependent on the younger members of the family for food and survival.

Solution

We will provide food supply comprising rice, dried fish, milk and meat to elderly people who are most vulnerable to hunger and malnutrition. We will touch-base with barrio authorities in order to identify them and enroll into our long-term food delivery initiative. Aside from food, we will provide them with activities that they can do like vegetable gardening, home hobbies and the like in order for them to be physically active and be useful.

Long-Term Impact

The well-being of elderly people is very important for the smooth functioning of the community. The elderly are a source of joy for the children, a library of local knowledge and they need the much-needed respect and support as they await their final journey through life.
