Food, clothes, bedding for elderly people in Medellin, Colombia

Requested by

Fundacon Pan para un Abuelo

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

The foundation Bread for a Grandpa (“Pan para un Abuelo”) aims to provide the means for a decent life to elderly people.

We work in the District 9 of Medellin, Colombia where elderly people become vulnerable due to their situation of abandonment and desolation. The foundation has grown from helping 20 elderly people in 2007 to 140 today.

We want to give a solution to their situation of poverty, of lack of proper nutrition, of lack of fun and healthy activities, and their need for decent clothing.

What is your project and how will it help?

In the short term the goal is to:

- Provide a balanced diet that meets all nutritional requirements for elder people.
- Achieve administrative solvency, to improve conditions for employees and volunteers of the foundation.
- Provide dentures and eye surgery for elders who need it, and so succeed in giving smiles to grandpas.

In the short term the goal is to:

- Be self-sustainable by developing self-reliance projects.
- Having our own headquarters to better serve our elder people.
- Provide permanent and quality health care to grandpas.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

There are different ways to give us their support and contribute to the project. Mainly through volunteering, donations and funding.

Please detail the resources that you need.

Donations in kind:
- Clothes
- Bedding
- Clothing and household goods in good conditions (which is sold in permanent bazaars to help support the work)

- Supply of food

Donations of money. Any amount is kindly accepted.
