Even by their own families, the elderly are ignored, thought to have lived out their need to be cared for. Their sons and daughters are often so poor they must choose between feeding their parents or feeding their children. Please help us to provide this small but necessary contribution to their lives.
There are several more who need more than just one meal, of course, and if you would like to make a one-time donation or consider sponsoring an elderly person's medical costs, please review the extra needs below. Remember that these costs are in addition to the cost of their lunch per month, at $35.
A-70 Dolores Leja needs medicine and milk each month, which cost $78.
A-75 Santiago Bocel needs medicine and Ensure at $104.35 a month.
A-82 Fidelia Pinzon needs medicine and diapers at $62 a month.
and A-84 Felipa Xingo needs medicine at $4 a month.
Go to www.mayanfamilies.org/donatenow and write "Elderly Care Sponsorship" or list the number and need (for example A-91, vitamins $13) in the Other box. For any questions you may have, or for more information on a particular Anciano, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
