As a young I was educated in Germany majoring in Social Work. Ever since then to care for elderly impressed me. Now, being old I understand and felt it more what it means to be old. It is fortunate to leave in the developed country like America where seniors care is more strong and viable.

In a country like Ethiopia there is no place for elderly to go except around churches and beg. It is very heart breaking condition to see them at these vulnerable years to be in the situation they are at this critical time in life. If there is any way you could help these less fortunate elderly, please take a moment to explore ways and means to help them at the same time.

Please give serious thought on elderly care in less fortunate countries. There is a saying, "Fifty lemon for one person to carry is a load and one for each an aroma." Accordingly, if there is willpower there are opportunities to help them to those who have no hope and help. Even blankets and anything of that sort would be of a great benefit; when it is cold in countries where there is no heating system they are vulnerable to cold they are shivering and severely get sick. Anyone of that age could understand it better at old age one needs to be in warm environment.
