Description

Many elderly people in Romania, Liberia, Haiti, and other impoverished countries have no one to care for them. Some beg on the streets or try to sell a little something for income. Thanks to sponsors, the Help-for-the-Elderly program provides more than 1,600 food parcels to needy elderly people each month. A $47 donation provides a 25-pound or larger parcel and $10 cash or its equivalent in food items. In many cases, a Christian family magazine is also included.
