With a decline in the number of younger people in Cuba, this leaves an aging population, many without family members to care for them. These older people have a high risk of developing debilitating health problems, both physical and mental, and will become dependent on help from others. But for those who do not have family members available to care for them, the problem of their care becomes an urgent one.
His Hands for Cuba has established a sponsorship program through which you can sponsor an elderly person in Cuba to help support their residential care. $25.00 per month will help pay for the cost of supporting them in the facility, helping to cover the expenses of their food, clothing, shelter, and medical care as well as providing them with companionship and fellowship in the elderly home. [Please note: it takes 2 sponsors at $25/month each to cover the cost of supporting one senior in the home.]
Sponsors receive a photo and personal information about the senior they are helping including information about how to correspond with them, if they choose to do so. Sponsors can choose the gender of the senior they would like to sponsor and may continue to sponsor the same person from year to year, as long as they remain in the program. 100% of the sponsorship payment goes directly to Cuba. None of it is used to cover the administrative expenses of this program here in the US.
Sponsoring a senior in Cuba is truly a blessing not only to the senior, but to the sponsor as well. If you would like information about how you can sponsor an elderly person in Cuba, please contact us.
