In the modern world, with the development and progress of the society, family seems to be breaking down into a more individualistic manner. Humans are losing humanity. The mother, who have sacrificed so much while bearing the child, have become less valuable and liability to the family as time passes and as their sons/daughters forgets to appreciate the sacrifice that has been made for them. With the time passes, they age, losing their ability to work and therefore causing the to lose the ability to earn. When this happens, they becomes the liability and has now became an invaluable possession to the family, ultimately leads their fate to beg on the street and are left to sleep on the streets as they got abandoned. They keep themselves alive whilst eating wastage from the trash, leading a very miserable life that can lead to a very traumatic scar in the mental mind. They pass the day with very little hope of surviving, hopelessness of wanting to just rest forever. So, we created a small Old Age Home hoping to reach out to these elderly that has been abandoned by their family. The goal is that we will be able to be their light of hope that things can get better, not only by providing shelter, food, and medication, but also comforting them both mentally and physically along with creating a community, making their life to be easier to live through. Everything that we do and provide in this Home is free of charge, including the medical treatment that each individual requires during their stay here until the very end. It is very surprising to see that when any of the elderly who have passed away, not one of their family members will come and visit to see them in the last moment.. So, as the world advances, the cases of this happening has been increasing. The demand for this kind of Old Age Home are getting more and more in the society. So, WHO ARE WE? We are a non-profit Non Governmental Organization (NGO) who has been working upon for the last few decades to provide even more for the society. Our Old Age Home currently holds 50 elderly women who are taken care of and will be taken care of until the very end. But, this journey is very limited due to the limited resources that we have. So, through this platform, we are approaching towards every one of you for whatever support we can get from you. Hopping that we will be able to reach out to more and providing shelter to more people who are in need.
So, through the end of their life, they will passed knowing that there are part of the society who cares for them.
