Although our primary mission is to help children get education as a way out of poverty, their families and older adults need care also. We often have to support a home or provide food to the parents or single parent so they can properly care for their children at home. Some parents need medical care or dental care to maintain their health; no parent health, no ability to care for the children.
Unfortunately we also have four widows and and a widower that we support, all but one who have small children to raise.
In addition we have some elderly and sickly adults who cannot support themselves who we care for. We provide money for food and rent.
