Elder lives

Sponsor a Destitute Elder Woman

Elderly women who are poor and live alone or with dependent children find them vulnerable, powerless and are neglected by their family or grown up children. Many are too old or physically weak and thus unable to find work. They are forced to beg, and are often homeless.

Moved by the plight of destitute single women, Seruds has taken up program of sponsoring elderly women on an urgent basis. Our volunteers and staff members conducted surveys and identified 120 destitute women who are above 60 year of age. These elderly women are widows or have been abandoned by their husbands. Some have children, but the children live apart and do not take care of their mothers. They do not have money for food, medical care and other basic necessities.

Let us Support the Elders of our Society

They worked hard all their lives, brought up children, and later took care of grandchildren. Now, at the last stage of their life, when they are helpless and lack even food and shelter, they deserve our help.

You can help by sponsoring a destitute elderly woman by giving just ₹2500/month, and enable her to live with dignity. Under our Sponsor an Elder Scheme, the donor will receive regular feedback on how the money was spent and the status and updates on the sponsored senior citizen.

Tax benefit Receipt for sponsoring once you sponsor will receive:
  • Destitute Elderly Person Particulars and Background
  • Impact of Donation and How the money has been utilized for the specific purpose / feedback report (in due course of time)
