Our elders have many material concerns including unemployment, low pensions, expensive medical services and medicines. However, these problems are worsened by their diminished social lives. The problem is very serious in Gori where some elders don’t even have a single person to prepare them food or bring them medicine.
Gori’s Red Cross Society works very hard to fix this problem. We have a separate divisional for the elderly and we have a senior day center where elders can meet and socialize. We also help them with their daily issues and give them food and clothes.
This senior day center lacks a kitchen, and our organisation does not have the funds to build it. Without a kitchen, the operation of the center is very difficult. Everyone must go home for a meal and often they cannot return if they desire.
Fixing this problem is very important for the elders to be more comfortable in the center. It will also allow them to spend more time there and ensure that they have a healthy meal.
My idea is to install a kitchen and solve the problem. The senior center has plays an important role in elders daily life and this will benefit them greatly. In addition, this project will help us to host social events in the future and greater contact between the elders and the wider population.
The Georgia's Red Cross Society of Gori's senior center will have a kitchen which will last for many years.
Equal gender opportunity:
Beneficiaries of the day center are mostly women but there are some men as well.
