Organization : Good Samaritans India, Hyderabad.
"Adopt an Elder", it is an initiative that allows each one of you to part-take in social service and help at least a single person. It is estimated that India has the highest number of destitute in Asia.
Each of us can form a group in your school, college or workplace and adopt one elder or destitute from our home and bear his/her monthly expenses. For example, if a group of 5 adopts an old man, his expenses would roughly come up to rupees ₹ 3000 in a month which includes his food, medicines and sanitary items. Each one could contribute ₹ 600/- or buy the items for him. Every elder or destitute can live a life with basic necessities. Participants of this campaign are requested to donate every month to support the elderly they have adopted.
