Sponsor Nutritious Meals For Destitute Elderly Persons

The Problem:
In Budhavarapeta slums in Kurnool, Andhra Pradesh has a number of destitute elderly people, who are neglected by their Sons and Daughters. Many of them don’t have families to support them and resort to begging for food, while others belong to families where the adult members go off to work leaving them alone at home. Not only do they struggle with the absence of any social and economic security, but with lack of reasonable nutrition as well. These Elderly persons are spending their time at community halls, grave yard, neighbour houses.

Our Solution:
We have been providing every day nutritious meals to these 30 destitute older persons since 2009. The hot meals are distributed daily between 1-2pm and include a variety of nutritional foods like steamed cooked rice, dhal, sambhar, mixed vegetable curry, seasonal pickle, Papad etc. This means they no longer have to beg for something that is so readily available to the rest of the world. The plan is to expand this project into other nearby areas as well. By providing nutritious food to the destitute elderly people, they recovered from their ill-health.

The Impact:
The program attempts to eliminate the aged persons from begging in slums of Kurnool, who simply can’t afford to eat, and ensure a daily worth of nutritious meals. With your kind generous support the old age people can have good nutritious meal and live with dignity.

Respected Supporters,

Greetings from SERUDS!! Thank you for all your generous support for the destitute elderly persons through esteemed organisation Milaap.
As part of our regular activities for the poor old age persons, we have been providing nutritious midday meals for the 30 old age persons since 2009, when massive floods occurred in Kurnool. Since then we have been identifying the older persons, who are neglected by their sons and daughters and homeless.
We have been rescued many of the elderly persons from the begging. We usually provide motivational classes for them to live with dignity till their last breath. Many of the older persons sleep at neighbours houses, community halls, thatched huts in Budhavarapeta slums of Kurnool Town. The age group of the old age persons are 60 to 90 years. Some of them are having ill-health and they are not able to work any more for their survival.
Everyday we provide nutritious meals in the afternoon at 1.30pm to 2.30 old age persons and the meal includes steamed cooked rice, tur dal, sambhar, vegetable curry, seasonal pickle and fruits, curd, etc. with this nutritional meals the old age persons are healthy now and they are very confident that they will live for a few more days.
The elderly persons' health has been improving and they express sincere gratitude towards the kind gesture. With your kind and timely support only we have been serving the destitute and needy with out any hurdles.

Thanking you for supporting the noble cause.
