In Africa one of the things that make our parents to grow up quickly is that they work so hard to bring up their children. This is very true to most women in Africa And rather than the children they look after their husbands as well. But the subsistence nature of farming and the pity jobs make them remain poor
This worsens in the old age as they become dependents on poor children who also have their own families to look after. This lives the old people who can’t fend for them to wish they had died before. All this is caused by poverty. The old look at themselves as a burden to others. Most of them are not sure of how the next day would be as something to eat some times comes late
But it is good that in this world there people who feel life should not be miserable for the old people as well. This year a suggestion was proposed by a friend from Ireland –Donegal Inishowen to give help every after two months. In this six families were considered to see how it works this year. .In this 300 Euros are sent to support these people. So each family gets food support as a supplement to their effort. This was done to help these people in their poverty in which they cannot do much in the old age.
One may think it is little. To the old who lacked something to eat at times it’s great. One once said we are better than those leaders who have made false promises. Ever since the project started their lives have not remained the same. They see life worth living now and they are no longer a big burden to the family members and now harmony prevails.
