Care For Destitute
The number of destitute in our cities is appalling. They live on the streets in shockingly sub-human conditions. Deprived of basic necessities, they face disease, hunger, and certain premature death. They are most in need for human compassion and care.
Senior Citizens Bangalore (SCB) supports AiR Humanitarian Home that has been caring for destitute in Bangalore since 1979. A sensitized police force rescues destitute mostly elderly men and women and takes them to this home. The home cares for approximately 150 elderly men and women destitute. The trauma of sub-human living has left most of them mentally scarred besides being physically debilitated. The home provides shelter, nutrition, medical care and rehabilitation to its inmates. Most importantly it provides hope and human kindness.
SCB supports the home with food, medical care and infrastructural facilities.
NUTRITION & MEDICAL CARE
SCB provides nourishing food comprising of grains, dal, sambhar, vegetables, eggs and dairy products. Festivals and birthdays are celebrated with special meals. On the medical side provides medicines, arranges for doctor visits and regular medical check-ups. Hospitalization when required is also provided.
We have seen a significant improvement in health with reduced need for medication over time. Celebration of festivals and birthdays gives a sense of security, importance, camaraderie and emotional support. This has contributed in no small measure to giving them hope and happiness.
