Challenge

Majority of the visually challenged old age people are neglected by their children and their health condition doesn't cope with them to work. They are dependent on others for their basic living needs such as food and health care. The problem becomes worse if they come from a rural/socially backward background. It needs someone with social responsibility and distinguished ability to give them support by providing food groceries.

Solution

Understanding the current situation of these people, IAB introduced a scheme of FOOD GROCERIES FOR VISUALLY IMPAIRED FAMILIES. IAB identifies the poor elderly visually challenged people from rural areas of Tamilnadu and providing the basic needs of living for VI people of the age group 50+ by providing a pack of monthly food groceries. This support helps the visually challenged senior citizens and their families to eat food timely and their health has been improved.

Long-Term Impact

Nearly 50 families are getting benefitted from this ongoing program. Now they are leading a dignified and independent life with joy and harmony. There are some more visually impaired elderly people are waiting to receive this support. Your support will make a huge difference in the lives of Poor elderly visually impaired.
