We run a small befriending project where we visit 10 old people every week.
We started by going into the poorer areas and to see how we could help the people there… one of the obvious problems was old people in hammocks, with no one taking care of them. There is a massive need to care for the elderly here.
We offer them food, a hand massage, care, going to the hospital with them and a listening ear… and we sometimes help them to a Doctor or take a Doctor to visit them.
We hope to upscale this outreach, which would mean helping, training and connecting more volunteers with the lonely old people we find…
