FEAST aims to tackle the hardship suffered by the communities along the coast of Tamil Nadu by supporting a variety of programmes.
With no welfare state or old age pension in India, and families struggling to feed their own children, many elderly people find themselves homeless and forced to beg once they are no longer able to work.
FEAST enables elderly people to remain with or return to their families thanks to support similar to the child sponsorship programme.
For just £5 a month you could help transform an elderly person’s life
To an elderly relative of a fishing family in Tamil Nadu it is the difference between dignified old age or begging on the streets.
Sponsoring an elderly person today will provide much needed food, shelter and medical assistance
