65-year-old Bimla no longer has to beg for food

Bimla's has had a hard life in the last 65 years. She was born and raised in Kamalpur village. At a young age, she married Nityananda.

Her husband was a door to door clothes vendor in the village. After 12 years of her marriage, her husband passed away.

Bimla then single-handedly had to take care of her seven daughters and one son. She faced a very tough time by herself coping with financial hardships. She worked as a maid to manage the needs of her large family.

She worked hard and got her children married. Unfortunately, after their marriage, all her children got busy with their lives, and no one supported Bimla.

She lived in a one-room mud wall house with one of her daughters who is a widow. Her daughter worked as a helper in a tailoring shop. Bimala suffers from severe asthma and hence found it very hard to find a job. With no means of livelihood, she started to beg.

Abhoy Mission's social workers spotted her and decided to include her in the Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) beneficiary List. After the intervention of Abhoy Mission, things changed for the better.

She now receives rations every month. She also received medical help when required. She has been enabled to live a dignified life now, with the support of Abhoy Mission.

Without the support of Abhoy Mission, Bimla would have spent all her old age begging. The aid she has received has given her dignity in her golden years.

You can also help poor seniors get two meals a day which is a basic right. You can donate so that they can get the support with which they can live their golden years in peace. You can give with confidence because every program listed is GIVEASSURED.

Program Description

Abhoy Mission runs a 'Sponsor a Grandparent' program that aims at providing social security and dignity to the poor, destitute and incomeless senior citizens residing in slums and rural areas in western Tripura district.

One unit of donation to this program will cover the monthly ration kit expenses of an underprivileged senior citizen.

This program, earlier known as "Adopt a Grandparent" since its inception in 2003 has given many poor senior citizens security of food and living expenses.

The program is the first of its kind in Tripura. It identifies eligible senior citizens and provides them with commodities for daily living.

The commodities include items like rice, dal, mustard oil, soya bean, salt, coconut oil, soap, clothes, and medicines.

The items required are bought in bulk and distributed to the beneficiaries in their homes within the first 15 days of a month.

They are also given Rs. 50 for medicines and Rs.50 as an allowance for any personal needs.

When you donate to this program, you help old and poor elderly citizens with the basic necessity of food in their old age.

Cohesion within the family increased, Dignity of the elderly within the family as well as society revived. Grandchildren are most happy and got the most benefit as they are getting support from grand parents. Disturbances within the families disappeared. The senior citizen mostly were daily wages earner for which they do not have any savings for their old age. Now, when they are financially and emotionally unable to do work for the livelihood, it become very much difficult to lead a healthy life. Their children are also have very low income for which it become very constrain to run the whole family. The people who are getting this support are able to give something to their family and live a dignity life. We are thankful to Give India and their donors for whom it is been possible to reach this section of society by being a ray of hope.
