HonourThe elderly are often those facing the most challenges as decreasing strength and ill health narrows their options for providing for themselves. Honour is our initiative for the elderly.
Our ‘Honour’ project is focussed on the needs of elderly and infirm people. We have seen the need for immediate emergency assistance as well as a strategy for longer term solutions for accommodation and upkeep for people in the later stages of life. A number of elderly people we have met are destitute, unable to pay their rent or provide for themselves. We can play our part in not only helping them to survive but to thrive and to make plans for a sustainable future through small subsistence projects.
With our partners in Zambia we recently acquired a plot of land, that has been cleared and made ready for the construction of a six roomed community house, designed to give elderly people the dignity of safe and secure accommodation and also the benefits of living in community. There will be enough space for some subsistence farming and rearing of animals.
In the meantime we have started a sponsorship scheme to meet the immediate needs of particular individuals and couples.
If you can help with sponsorship of elderly people, or in the longer term building project, please get in touch.
CiCA UK deducts 5% from every donation to cover essential admin costs including the transfer of funds to Africa, where Gift Aid reclaims are made we allocate the refunds to the general fund to further the general aims and objectives of the charity.
