Adopt a “Babushka”

Posted on Dec 7, 2015


The “Good Samaritan” project is expanding through the cooperation with the International Women’s Club of Almaty. Every year, the Club carries out the action for providing to a number of elderly women living in difficult conditions, gift baskets on the eve of the New Year. This year, Caritas offered its help to continue the action throughout the year, at least for those “babushky” who are most in need of assistance. And so was born “Adopt a Babushka”, a project within a project, where we want to offer to volunteers the chance to took care of one person in need. The commitment, for example, to regularly call the person to ask about life, but at the same time to make the person – who mostly live alone – feel that somebody is caring, regular visiting to spend some time together, helping in cleaning the house, in purchasing, up to more complex issues as questions with documents or with medicine. Because who said that you can only adopt children?
