Provide food & clothing to a helpless aged person, INR 1200

It is often observed that elderly people in rural areas are ignored and left uncared for by their families. This is because the sole breadwinner finds it difficult to support all his family members including the children owing to their minimal income. Against this backdrop, Vizhuthukal Trust decided to provide food, medicines and clothing to the elderly in the areas in which they work.
How It Works

• The selection of beneficiaries is done by the Trust’s self-help groups based on criteria, such as age, extent of dependence of the person, health, occupation, and family support.
• Priority is given to widows and the destitute.
• This donation will help them reach out to more people.

The Statistics

• There are more than 2,000 old people in the villages that the Trust works in.
• Currently, they support 25-30 elderly people on a month on month basis.
• In the 2013-14, the trust supported more than 350 poor and old people in Tirunelveli.

Nangaiar has two daughters. She is working as an agriculture coolie and earns Rs.35/per day (not regular) with this income Nangaiar is not able to manage her family. As such she cannot take care her aged mother.
During house visit, our staff of Vizhuthukal Trust found out the pathetic condition of their family. Our staff arranged regular medicines from the Government hospital at Alankulam, after a thorough check-up. With the local donation Muthumari was provided 10 Kg. of rice , grocery, a saree, health drink, and vegetable by Vizhuthukal Trust.
Because of the regular medical care and livelihood assistance Mrs. Muthumaris health and family condition have improved considerably. Now Muthumari is not a burden to her family. Now we can see the rays of happiness on her face.
