Provide food and Provisions for the Elderly!

Why am I fundraising?

Organization : Good Samaritans India, Hyderabad. 

The phase of the sunset of life is the most trying time for those endowed with uncared health. It gets bad for those who are old frail and without any financial backup. In such circumstances if their families forsake them, the nightmarish unimaginable suffering of the elderly is unbearable. With failing health, no food and shelter, these elders are sometimes left on the roads or on pavements eating morsels thrown at them, surviving the vagaries of the weather and traffic , becoming ill and sometimes injured and without any hope or respite of future. 

To give them a ray of hope we take these people to our shelter-home and provide them with food, shelter and free medicines, and take care of their needs providing them a life of dignity. Our unique service model is supported by three pillars: Philanthropy (Save), Volunteerism, (Spread) and Partnerships (Support). We currently have about 130 homeless elderly people in our Home for the Aged.

We seek earnestly from all who care about this large neglected segment of our society. To keep doing this good work continue we seek financial support. We provide basic amenities to the homeless elderly people including food, shelter, clothing and medical needs. The monthly expenses for this are Rs. 3000 - Rs. 4500 per person based on the medical needs. This is the maximum cost on an average and may decrease because of shared costs. Depending on the patient, if the case is very critical it may also exceed the amount greatly.

For these purposes we require funds and support from all kind people.
