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.

Story from the field
Jag Narayan Manjhi, 75 Years belongs to Beur Mushari, Beur ( Block- Phulwarisharif), Patna. Though he got 2 sons but none of them take any care of the the old crippled man. Recently Jag Narayan's wife had too passed away leaving the old man to lead a helpless solitary life. The poor man had been completely alone and helpless, struggling for bread and rice to keep him alive. His body had almost retired and gradually deteriorating. Day-by-day he was perhaps loosing the hope to live more days. No body in his locality and even his own children held his hand to support him. Anyhow he required some urgent help, and very timely someone reported us about him. We immediately interacted with him and got him enrolled under the ADD's Basic clothing programme and provided him with Dhoti, Kurta, Towel, Bedsheet and Mosquito-net. We also assured him to help him in regard of his unhealthy body. However for immediate relief we got him diagnosed and treated at Primary Health Centre. Apart of this, we too talked to his sons and convinced him him that every man on this earth has to become old one day. At this stage everybody will need a shoulder to count the remaining days. So its our prime responsibility to take care of our old parents. Very positively, Jag Narayan's sons got convinced and these days, he has been happily caring his old father.Doing all these, just to make him feel better and happier than before, we felt quite proud and very humbly we thank our donors for giving us a chance to uplift the life of such poor needy people. May god bless the poor old man.

Under this Programme, we have provided the basic clothing aid to our specified beneficiaries. The clothing aid included 2 sarees & blouse sets for the female beneficiaries and 2 dhotis & 2 kurtas for the male beneficiaries along with towel, mosquito net & bed sheet. These life supplements though can not quench the thirst or the hunger of a needy person, but we also can't deny that one's clothing and environment decides their fate. Apart from providing these benefits to our beneficiaries, we also educate them about the significance of health and sanitation. We also have decided to work upon their health and sanitation requirements.
