Caring for the Elderly
Poverty Meets Compassion
People go hungry every day in Ukraine and Belarus. It is simply a hard reality in a place where the average salary is only about $100US a month. Elderly pensioners often get less than that $100. Even $100 is not nearly enough money to pay for food and utilities and medicine. Many people make hard choices between heat and basic food. As a Christian aid agency, together with our partners, we distribute packages of emergency food containing basics like rice, flour, oil and tea. We also help keep them warm in the winter with wool blankets.
