This is the second time around where I will be participating in the ADHM. I wish to run and fundraise in support of the Wishes and Blessings Old Age Home.
In India, 65% of the elderly population testifies to neglect and abuse. A severe shortage of old age homes has forced them to continue living in such condition all by themselves. This section of the society has long been neglected, with various statistics verifying the same. According to conservative estimates, there is a requirement of over 15000 old age homes out of which only 750 homes presently exist. In order to fill this gap between the required and actual numbers of old age homes in our country, and with a motive to provide the elderly and neglected people the love and dignity they deserve; Wishes and Blessings aims to set up a series of old age homes in India. The first in this series; Mann Ka Tilak was inaugurated on the 25th of April, 2018. This home is a private and charitable home for old and abandoned women in Delhi NCR and aims to provide them with a lease of new life.
It is my appeal to you to please help me fundraise and support Wishes and Blessings. The money raised will be used to meet the running cost of their first old age home as well as the setting up of their second home for men.
