Un Techo Para Nuestros Abuelos

Update posted by Sani Eldarwish On Feb 25, 2020

Dear Friends and Family,

Our project to renovate the laundry room for the elderly at the Asilo de San Sebastian is finally complete.

We raised almost half of our target of CHF 10,000, with the balance made up for by The AS&G Foundation effort.

I have uploaded some additional photos of the final work and a video showing the results and another communicating our gratitude:

The New Laundry Room

Thank You!


I cannot express just how thankful I am to all of you for making this achievement possible. Renovating a laundry room doesn't sound like much, but it is to me. For the elderly at the Asilo it provides some sense that they exist and that we notice them and their needs. They are not alone.

My parents were kind and loving people and I know they would be proud of what we have all done in their names. It is my hope that this is just one of many projects that we will accomplish together to fulfill our mission:

"To eliminate the despair of those without means in an enduring and sustainable manner."

While our aim was to change the toxic asbestos roof, as we progressed other issues presented themselves such as inappropriate plumbing, insufficient electrical wiring, a failing water boiler and waste of electricity and water related to faulty machinery. We eliminated these and remained within budget, contributing to the Asilo's sustainability longer term.

Special thanks go to our providers who did a great job making your generosity a concrete reality:

Finally we start!

After some negotiating and vetting we finally finalised the project with a serious and reliable architect and started work this week.

Bye Bye Asbestos Roof! :

Dearest Friends and Family, in the name of my beloved parents AS&G, thank you for being a part of our journey to fight despair and plant the seed of joy where it feels most absent. We wish you and your loved ones a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Dear Friends and Family,

While everything goes into slow motion in the world as the end of the year approaches, we are still doing our best to keep on top of our campaign. Thanks to a generous anonymous donor's contribution of $1,000 we are now at $4,330, nearly half way to our goal. We have solicited a third estimate from an architect, sticking ardently to our policy of spending wisely. In a month our campaign page has had 336 views resulting in 30 contributors. Once again thank you to everyone that made the effort to give the gift of caring for our abandoned elderly. Age catches up with all of us indiscriminately. Outside this campaign we made the effort to boost their spirits with some Christmas gifts of bingo, loteria, pickup sticks, casino and dominoes. Attached is a photo of Don Jose-Luis, the resident dominoes champ who will teach me the finer points of the game when I visit with them in the New Year. Also in addition to our campaign effort, having found the home freezing cold (no heating) we bought them a bunch of new heating units online and had them delivered lickety split (thank you Amazon). Now, hopefully, they'll have more warmth over Christmas, both emotionally and physically. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Dear Friends and Family,

I am pleased to report that we are well on our way to our goal of 10,000 for our campaign, just recently smashing through the 3,000 mark! Thanks again to all of our donors for taking the time to give, to make a gesture, to care for our old and lonely.

We are appreciative, and here is a great little song of just a few seconds from Anita the huerfanita to put it in perspective:
