The Mama Dynaa Centre operates under The Okwir Foundation umbrella. This was set up to support the elderly in the community. The estimated number of elderly people in Akara village and the immediate surrounding area is 170 – 220.
The elderly face many challenges every day and most are unable to cope with the difficulties. They lack sufficient amount of food and lack the very basic such as Salt, Corn meal, Matches and Soap. TOF has so far supplied these basics for the elderly but need continuous support to make this happen. Most suffered severe blows during the aids epidemic. Many lost all their children and they had to become parents all over again raising the grandchildren. TOF recognises the depth of this pain as they too suffered the same fate.
TOF recruited volunteers who help out by fetching water and fire wood for the elderly. We purchased two Bicycles which also help in taking them to hospitals when there is a need. We are totally committed to supporting our elderly and will work hard to support them the best way we can. Your donation towards this cause will be very much appreciated.
