Sponsor the nutrition and healthcare of poor senior citizens


Kuntabala finds meaning in her life after 27 years!

Kunta Bala Chakraborty lived alone and had a hard life. She lost her husband at a very young age and worked hard for 27 years to make ends meet and struggled all her life.

She had no children. As she got older, she lost her strength to carry on working. With no family and no support, she was struggling even for a decent meal a day. She lost all hope and saw no reason in living.

It was then that the team from Sevashram rescued her and brought her to the ashram.

She was provided with shelter and food. She was counseled and motivated to live life in a more meaningful way.

With a safe shelter, nutritious food, love, and care, she gained her strength. She then wanted to start working and be engaged in helping other people.

Today, Kunta Bala has become an energetic mother of the Sevashram. She helps in the activities of Sevashram Girls Home.

Kuntabala is now leading a life of joyful involvement of children.

Program Description

Sarada Ramakrishna runs an old age ashram to provide food and health support to the needy elderly in need.

One unit of donation to this program covers the cost of healthcare and basic nutrition for one senior citizen a month.

The community workers of Sarada Ramakrishna identify the destitute and needy senior citizens through their outreach program.

They verify their economic and social conditions and after a village level discussion enroll them in the program after which they live in the shelter.

The senior citizens in the ashram get three meals a day. They receive their monthly medicines on a specified date when they are delivered at the Sevashram. When the members produce bills of any medicines or doctors' fees, they receive reimbursement.

A doctor visits the ashram thrice a month and attends to any ailments of the members of the program. Any supplies required for the basic medical help of the members are also covered by the Sevashram.

When you donate to this program, you help destitute elderly citizens with access to food and essential medicines in their golden years.

The very poor senior citizens and their families at the grassroot level have been suffering from fullfillment of lack of basic necessities of life. The senior citizens have been selected from 20 villages of Baruipur and Magrahat Blocks of South 24 Parganas. These were the ones who were in immediate need of supplies. Therefater, they were provided with Rice, puffed rice, gram dust, biscuits, coconut oil, soap, detergent powder, etc. all the essentials which are required in day to day life. This supoort has made things a lot easier for them during this tough situation. This has surely helped them escape hunger and escape other means to beg for food as even their health does not permit them to work now leaving them with no source to earn an income
