OLDER ADULTS

“Grandparents of love”

This is the most neglected population in our country and the one that is most affected by poverty and abandonment. Many sick elderly people over 70 years old have to continue working in the streets and markets in order to survive, many have been abandoned by their children and live practically on charity.

For this reason, Expand Peru, has been developing the Senior Adult project, with which we attend and help many elderly people in topics such as food, medical assistance and physical therapy, generation of entrepreneurship, playful, artistic and recreational activities (many games), as well as many healthy leisure activities: walks, camps, bicycle tours, parties and celebrations, among many others.

The care of these grandparents takes place in their own homes, as well as in premises of our organization, where they attend accompanied by our volunteers and monitors.


Who we help:

  • Elderly over 70 years of age in a condition of abandonment and/or poverty.

  • Give the elderly a dignified old age with a good quality of life, feeling loved, protected and cared for.
