Food Packages for the elderly
Through our work with our clients, we have spent considerable time in 38 sub-villages throughout the Bantul Regency, each of which has an aging population. Most of the elderly people are unable to work, and many are widowed and live alone with insufficient food. Therefore, we believe that acts of pure “charity” are required and necessary in certain situations. As such, PPMK initiated a food program three years ago, through which we assembled food packages, containing basic necessities such as rice, milk, oil, biscuits, sugar, tea, and instant noodles, and distributed them to needy elderly people in Bantul, and this has become part of our regular charity work every year. In average, we distributed 100- 300 food packages each year. Our goal is to continue to grow this program by regularly delivering basic necessities to needy elderly people in all of the sub-villages we serve.
