ABOUT CIRCLE OF CARE

Plate Of Joy

Hunger is a Punishment you pay for the Crime you didn't even commit.

No one deserves to sleep hungry! Especially, not the old and helpless elder buddies who have struggled all their lives just so to be able to feed their families.

Plate of Joy is an initiative started by Mrs. Minu Hirode keeping in mind the adversities that the underprivileged elderly face due to old age and health reasons which has increased on a larger scale due to the pandemic. This has increased their inability to have access to nutritious and adequate food.

Plate of Joy offers two meals a day to the underprivileged elderly living in adverse circumstances, wherein our humble objective is to provide nutritious and tasty food to them on a daily basis.Today, we have 70 beneficiaries that have been part of this project are living in the slums of Vadodara (Sama, Nizampura, Fatehgunj, Bhayli and Ajwa)

Most of these people are suffering from some or the other physical or mental ailments and were unaware of when and where was their next meal was coming from.
Even a mere contribution of Rs. 100 can help feed one elderly two meals a day.
A contribution of INR 3000 covers up two meals for a month for 1 person and INR 36000 takes care of their two meals a day for an entire year.
We provide them healthy and nutritious food that comprises of a full meal- Sabji, dal , rice and roti in the morning while we try something different
like pulav kadhi, pav bhaji, chhole puri for evenings.

We also provide them with monthly quota of  vitamin and calcium supplements
as well as some basic essential toileteries like  bathing soaps, detergents for washing clothes and utensils, tooth paste, hair oil, powder etc.\

Circle of Care, an initiative by Lagni Foundation is an independent Indian NGO that  Promotes Positive ageing.The main objective is to help seniors engage, enrich and empower with opportunities for social interaction and recreation.

Positive ageing emphasize physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of our elder buddies. It is about striving one’s best to stay healthy and happy in the later years of life, both physically and mentally. Positive and healthy ageing constitutes making the senior years more healthful, fruitful, graceful, and meaningful. It is more about quality than quantity.
We run four  projects for the wellbeing of elder .
