Gift dignity of basic clothing to a senior citizen

Impact

Give hope to a poor elderly citizen like Saraswati.

Sarsawati Devi is a 72-year-old woman who lives in Sampatchak, Patna. She has four sons but all of them abandoned her. She is paralyzed and did not know how to look after herself.

She could not work or earn to support herself. She did not have enough for basic meals or proper clothing. She was alone, helpless and, living in abject poverty.

The team from Action for Development of Demos (ADD) noticed Sarsawati Devi while in the field. They enrolled her in their program for underprivileged senior citizens. They gave her basic clothing that took a huge burden off her. They also gave her blankets and towels so that she could keep herself warm and clean.

Although her life is still difficult, Saraswati Devi is grateful to ADD for helping her with basic needs. She now feels better and is able to think of how she can look after herself and get the help she needs to sustain herself.

Every person has the right to live with dignity and respect. You can help an underprivileged elderly citizen like Saraswati by donating for their basic necessities. You can give with confidence because every program on our platform is GIVEASSURED.

Program Description

Action for Development of Demos has a unique 'support for poor old person' program which provides support in terms of clothing senior citizens, below the poverty line, who are alone and nearing the end of their journey.

They work with economically downtrodden senior citizens in the rural and semi-urban areas of Bihar. Local ADD volunteers identify beneficiaries based on their economic status and include them in the program. ADD provides two pairs of clothing, undergarments, towels and a blanket for each beneficiary.

ADD representatives also try convincing the other family members about the importance of caring for the elderly.

Action for Development of Demos(ADD)

Being moved by the pitiable condition of the forgotten and depressed lot of the society, Action For Development of Demos (ADD) was registered in 2004. The organization spreads over 4 districts of Bihar and works with the most neglected, oppressed and downtrodden section of the society.

The organization has helped many children that belong to the BPL category and drop out of school due to the lack of funds. The organization supports the tuition fee. ADD supports around 60 children every year through this program. ADD is committed to providing the necessary post-natal home-based healthcare and nutrition support for the first 3- months to mother and the newborn child. Close to 50 women benefit from this service yearly. ADD also provides tricycles to the disabled people from the weaker sections. This encouraged more than 20 disabled every year to contribute to the families and stand on their own. Alongside, many are given computer training, the girls belonging to the BPL families are provided with bicycles etc.

With a mission to establish a healthy society of worthy individuals, the organization is helping the poor and needy to reach a better economic status and lead a dignified life.
