Elderly people face several hardships in life which include chronic diseases like arthritis and disease, dental problems like tooth decay and infection, poor housing, malnutrition, stress among others. In addition to this, most of the elderly people come from poor families making it extremely hard to meet the basic necessities of life. This also puts their lives in danger. Therefore, this project will promote the well-being of elderly people.
Elderly people in rural Uganda face several challenges in life and lack the capacity to fully address or solve them. Some of them sleep in muddy and wattle houses with leaking roofs, lack what to wear, feed poorly and when they fall sick, they cannot seek better medical care.
