HELP & HOPE BENEFIT FOR OUR FORGOTTEN
The South Asian Pharmaceutical Council, Charitable Foundation Inc., is proud to announce our 7th benefit gala called “Help and Hope” which will be held on Sunday, November 13th, 2022. The “Help and Hope” gala is for a cause that is often forgotten: Alzheimer’s in the South Asian elderly community.
It’s heartbreaking to see individuals who helped shape the world we live in, now find themselves alone and destitute in the evening of their lives. The elderly men and women, especially those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, Dementia, and other similar illnesses are either abandoned by their families or get displaced due to their conditions. To help bring awareness to this rising epidemic, the South Asian Pharmaceutical Council Charitable Foundation Inc. (SAPC CFI) is partnering with Saint Hardayal Educational and Orphans Welfare Society (SHEOWS) based in New Delhi to help support their new Old Age Home, Vishram Vridh Ashram, in Northern India.
We are looking for your support to raise funds for medical needs and to build a sanctuary for the impacted elderly which gives them hope during this late stage of their lives.
ABOUT Vishram Vridh Ashram
Vishram Vridh Ashram currently provides care for over 300 elderly people and has helped over 3000 since its inception 20 years ago. The ashram has also helped reunite over a thousand senior citizens with their families and loved ones. These efforts by the Ashram are commendable, however, in a populous country like India with a growing ageing population, there is a lot more work to do. To learn more visit www.sheows.org
