Widows and Orphans

In any society the most vulnerable tend to be children and the elderly. At DirectConnect we try to focus on those who are especially vulnerable in this category; the orphan and the alone elderly. We work through our local contacts to identify elderly shut-ins and orphanages / children’s shelters that are in poor condition.

We make a site visit and evaluate the situation for ourselves and see what immediate and long term solutions are needed. We provide for basic support such as food, clothing, and medicine and we will also make sure that there is adequate shelter.
