This is another area of engagement we are only beginning to look at, but we know that we must not...we cannot...forget the elderly who are so often among the most vulnerable in our societies.
The number of elderly poor is growing in Nepal. I recall seeing the homes for the elderly Tibetans in Patan or outside Pokhara. I was touched to see how well cared for these elders without families were by their community even though the community itself struggled to get by.
I was moved, inspired, and a bit shamefaced to think how often we might bemoan giving a bit of time and compassion to those who gave us life, who taught us, guided us, and paved the road upon which we walk.
Today, Soarway is proud to join with ten committed members of the Nepali expatriate community to ensure that one community of elders will receive bedding that they so urgently need. Ten kind souls, giving $200 each and Soarway will ensure that we give $1000 more. And we will continue forward from here.
Give back. Show you care.
