Caring For the Old and Destitute

A roof over their heads is a critical need of the elder who are destitute, sick and abandoned by family and those uprooted by disasters. HFF supports many old age homes. Based on their interests, capabilities and health condition, our volunteers carry out many of the day-to-day activities of the Home. Some help in kitchen chores, others assist in procurement of provisions; some look into maintenance-related tasks and a few others support in organizing in-house programs.

These people are abandoned by their families

Why do we encourage this? Because, keeping our elders engaged in this manner has created a sense of belonging in them; being proactively involved keeps them physically and mentally agile; and it fosters a strong bond among residents as they take it upon themselves to look after each other’s well-being.
