Challenge

There are thousands of destitute & disadvantaged elders who do not even have access to two square meals and the means to meet their basic needs. One of the oldest programs of HelpAge India is Support a Gran program which aims at filling this gap. Monthly ration of wheat, rice, pulses, cooking oil and basic spices are provided along with daily use items such as detergent, soap, clothing and some pocket money, to needy elders living in old age homes.
