Without enough to eat, many older people are becoming weak and malnourished. This leaves them more vulnerable to illnesses that they cannot afford medical care for and unable to provide for even their most basic needs.
In many cases, family members are unable to help as they struggle to feed themselves and their children, or often they immigrate overseas, leaving their parents who sit and wait for their children to arrive, which simply does not happen and they are left to die alone.
This leaves the elderly without any form of support and often living in heartbreaking conditions.
Our Senior Citizen Fund allows us to bring life-sustaining food and/or medical care to people who would otherwise be left to suffer and/or even die.
