We distribute packages of food and essentials to the homes of over 40 indigent elderly, as well as a dozen other families. By way of payment for this service, we encourage everyone to in turn do what they can for others. For example, one of the ladies whom we assist goes to check on five of the aged, taking care of their daily needs: warm meals, cleaning, and state of health.
We have also developed a small network of highly qualified physicians and specialists to take care of the cases we refer to them, free of charge. Though we do not often have to make use of their services, it is a big help to know that there are such dependable professionals ready to help whenever called upon. This allows us to not have to persue hospital admittance which is always very difficult to work out here, except for the most serious cases.
We are continuing with our regular cash assistance program for the most destitute, primarily senior citizens and underprivileged families. This program channels regular donations designated by contributors to specific cases, which we pass on monthly or quarterly, to cover rent and utilities. We also help sponsor children in need of educational scholarship.
