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.

A $49 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.
