Here at Mission Without Border's, we find ourselves in contact with ever greater numbers of elderly who are very often treated as worthless, are overlooked and ignored by society. Those who come to our community centres are hungry, sick, lonely and battle-weary from the constant struggle of trying to stay alive. We reach out to them with hot meals, visits, bringing them to our community centres and soup kitchens and, if they want to, to church.
“The last years have been very hard. I pray with tears daily because of my loneliness and disability. God has used the caring people from the Soup Kitchen to comfort me. I receive hot meals every day, and I can share my sorrows and hopes with them and they pray for me.” Mariya
