The activities of the centre started in 1991. We welcome the elderly of both sexes from among the poor and the feeble in the vicinity who are left to fend for themselves during the day. They stay with us from 8.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. during the week and meet in fellowship with kindred spirits in a friendly atmosphere watching TV, reading, sewing, playing indoor games and also engage themselves in keeping the premises clean while female elders assist the staff in cooking. Drooping spirits come magically alive in laughter and banter through the coming together of these folk as a community.
During their stay at the Centre, the elders are provided with breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and sometimes with dinner, if supplied by a donor. The committee members accompany the elders on an annual trip to places of historical/religious interest.
Our 'daily visitors' are provided with an allowance to help them travel to the centre, medical care, drugs, nutrition needs and cataract surgeries - all met with donor contributions.
