India is today home to 100 million senior citizens. The pity is that today’s rapid urbanization has overtaken the traditional value-system of our people and shifted their socio-economic priorities. Sons and daughters and their children find no time for the senior citizens in their family. The elderly, who have provided their services and support to the society, feel unloved and neglected at this phase of their lives. Their deteriorating physical strength and other geriatric illnesses add to their difficulties. Their poor financial condition, lack of affordable health care and the general neglect by society has propelled all of us to think about them and serve them or help them. So the students of Class X B in association with Helpage India will work for the disadvantaged elderly and will become the voice for India’s elderly.
