Care & Support for the elderly

VillageCARE

Protecting the dignity of the elderly as they near end-of-life.

VillageCARE serves to protect the dignity of our recipients as they near end-of-life. Our team organises weekly visits and provides basic assistance such as food, clothes, and medicine to support vulnerable households that either have a disabled or elderly member.

Many of our beneficiaries are in the last laps of their lives. Hence we go beyond material support by also offering friendship and a listening ear giving them emotional support in times of crisis.

Why VillageCARE?

In impoverished families, the elderly and disabled suffer the most – often lacking food and basic medical care.

VillageCARE was set up to provide practical support, and emotional care so that these individuals get to live their lives in dignity.
