WHY SPONSOR AN ELDERLY PERSON WITH MEDICAL CARE?

This sponsorship provides an underprivileged elderly person in Cambodia with a life-enhancing and potentially life-saving 12 month medical care package.

Most elderly people in Cambodia die from a lack of medical care due to insufficient (or non-existent) income. The elderly in Cambodia have to work their entire life, farming, fishing, growing vegetables, collecting recyclables and sometimes even begging in order to survive. There is no aged pension, medical assistance or aged care in Cambodia and most families can not afford to support their elderly parents.

When an elderly person can no longer physically work to generate income, financial pressure falls on their low-income-earning family. In the case of un for-seen medical expenses, this often results in grandchildren having to drop out of school to save on school expenses and take care of their grandparent, and the cycle of poverty continues.

A medical care package, gives an elderly person empowering access to medicine and medical attention before they reach crisis point. A medical care package also saves a family economic burden therefore providing more opportunity for their grandchildren.

This medical package is managed by our project manager in Cambodia and divided into 12x monthly payments to the recipient. If the money is not required for medical use on a monthly basis it accumulates as savings to be used for any medical emergencies.

This sponsorship is based on a monthly payment of $21.70 x 12 recurring payments. *Once the first initial payment is made through the online store we will provide bank details to avoid unnecessary fees for the outstanding 11 payments.

We encourage our sponsors to consider committing to sponsorships long term. Grandparent” profile and quarterly updates will be made available.
