Support to 80 Abandoned Elderly Housed in Anawim


Support to 80 Abandoned Elderly Housed in Anawim Summary The Organization is housing around 80 old age persons who were neglected and left to fend for themselves in their old age. They are seriously lacking regular Health checks, clothing and care, maintenance and emergency medication, and proper food and nutrition for sustained decent and respected living. Through the project, Anawim will provide daily meals, clothing and care, nutritious food and also provide emergency and maintenance medicine. By this process the organization will motivate, facilitate and support the abandoned old age persons for sustained decent and respected living. Challenge Old age persons are the pillar of any family but now, primarily due to economic difficulties, the old age persons are seriously neglected in food, clothing and care, nutrition, health checks, etc. Generally, they are suffering from chronic illnesses but they have no option for medicine due to lack of care and support of the family members. This is a serious problem that impacts the remaining years in their life cycle. Solution The Organization will inform and mobilize as much support as it can to provide assistance to the old age persons in different forms i.e. providing daily clothing and care, regular health checks and providing maintenance medication is most useful for old age persons. In the meantime, proper food and nutrition is also equally important. The Organization will initially provide daily clothing and care, and further support in regular health checks as well as medication.

Solar Project for Better Care


Solar Project for Better Care Summary The Anawim Lay Missions Foundation, a facility for abandoned elderly located in the Rizal Province, requires reliable electrical power for lights and equipment in order to provide adequate patient care and save lives. Inadequate power supply services outages, as well as high electricity fees impede healthcare and services to the abandoned elderly. Anawim Lay Missions Foundation's Partners will install solar power at the Anawim facility to ensure the elderly's care can be provided without interruption and to reduce dependence on the government power company. Challenge Currently 43% of Anawim's operating expenses pay for power. In late 2020, MERALCO, the government power company has announced that it will increase its costs to consumers, leaving even less funding available for other resources in Anawim's budget. Solution Phase 1 of the solar project began in 2018 with the installation of solar panels and batteries for the solar-powered water pump, replacing the dependence on the MERALCO-powered electric water pump. This reduced the use of MERALO power by 40%. Early Phase 2 of the project will add more batteries and solar panels to the main building with the goal of reducing the dependency on MERALCO by 70% more than in Phase 1. Long-Term Impact Completion of Phase 2 of the solar power project (projected for 2021) will allow uninterrupted care in all Anawim buildins and full use of all available equipment. Ultimately, MERALCO power will serve only as back-up to the generated solar power. Address : Sitio Tanag, Barangay Isidro, Rodriguez, Rizal Contact : (+63) 02 710-5273 Email : Other Projects
