Project 3 – To provide help for the handicapped, widowed, and elderly people

Julie’s second visit in 2005 enabled her to observe the conditions being experienced by some of the elderly and handicapped people. 

We are now helping the elderly and handicapped in three different groups:

Needy Villagers

Initially the charity provided assistance to 20 needy people. The numbers have now been increased to 47. The elderly receive £1.50 per month and the handicapped £2.50 – 50p of each person’s allowance is used by the Church to provide a ‘Sunday’ lunch. Additionally they have a monthly lunch-time social meeting in The Elizabeth-Ann Home with meat on the menu.

Widows 1

At Christmas time we provide 43 blankets/saris @ £2.50 for these people.

It is humbling that £1 can be so important in someone’s life. When asked how they spent the money, most of them indicated that they used it to purchase their daily breakfast.


Vinay and Benedicta have a great heart to assist the very needy elderly further. We have now built a new dining room that seats 70 - its foundations will permit a further expansion of the E-A Home upwards. Vinay is now providing a weekday meal for the 20 most needy villagers who although living with their children, are not able to feed themselves whilst their children are out working  - cost about 30p per day.

Other Locals in need

In 2010 we heard that some elderly from adjacent villages were coming to ask for help from Pastor Mary and Vinay.We are providing £70 per month being allocated at Mary & Vinay's discretion.
