Elderly | Andhra Pradesh
The Problem: In Budhavarapeta slums in Kurnool, Andhra Pradesh has a number of destitute elderly people, who are neglected by their Sons and Daughters. Many of them don’t have families to support them and resort to begging for food, while others belong to families where the adult members go off to work leaving them alone at home. Not only do they struggle with the absence of any social and economic security, but with lack of reasonable nutrition as well. These Elderly persons are spending their time at community halls, grave yard, neighbour houses.
