I am running for a cause: The Wishes and Blessings Old Age Home for Men and Women. I have been associated with the NGO for one year now and feel very passionately about providing a safe and secure home for many elderly and abandoned people, in Delhi NCR.
There are many privileged and underprivileged elderly people in India, who are abandoned and left to fend for themselves. This age is such that many corporates or government schemes, often fail to support an age that will not grow healthier, smarter or beneficial for “India” in the future. Statistics indicate that there are ONLY 1/4th old age homes, in Delhi, that cater to old men and women. Most of these homes are paid or are in unsanitary conditions. This age is at a very critical time in life, where they need all the love, care and support they can get! Many people coming from families like yours and mine, have no consideration towards their elders and acknowledge them as ‘Collateral Damage’. I have come across many cases, where wealthy men and women abandon their parents and grandparents, leave them in a temple or an ashram and expect them to fend for themselves!
Wishes and Blessings plans to launch a chain of Old Age Homes for many elderly and abandoned people, absolutely free of cost! This home away from home will provide every one of its residents with proper nutrition, loving & caring staff and a comfortable place to live out the rest of their lives.
