project description
Elderly care facilities are practically non-existent in Ethiopia. Elderly people without direct family to rely on often end up on the street. At this project, 100 single, mostly homeless, elderly people come together daily to have a hot meal and also have the opportunity to shower and wash clothes. Twice a week a nurse is present where the elderly can go with their complaints and, if necessary, be referred to the hospital. The elderly do not need to pay for this medical care. In a relatively simple way, this project brings dignity and human contact back into the lives of a group of vulnerable elderly people. The project employs 7 people and the costs for the care of the elderly amounts to € 55,000 per year.
