Set aside funds for elderly

26 April 2013, 16:46 Wangui Joseph

A Non-Government Organization based in Central Kenya has called upon governors to consider the elderly in their budgets.

Purity Eldery Care Foundation (PECF) executive director Joyce Wanjiku Kairu said the amount that was set by the national government is not enough.

Speaking in Nyeri on Friday, Wanjiku said many elderly people are living desperate, miserable lives and languishing in poverty.

She reiterated that governors should set aside some funds in their budget to take care of the old people in the society by improving their livelihoods.

According to Wanjiku, every member of the society should enjoy the fruits of devolved governments equitably.

“Services that were offered by central government are proximal to the people now. While governors will be reading out their financial plans, they should consider the old people in their counties,” said Wanjiku.

She further pointed out that her organization (PECF) is ready to work with governors to bring change to the lives of the elderly people in their respective counties.

“PECF takes care of vulnerable elderly people in the society who have either been neglected, abandoned, poor, sick, forgotten, or stigmatized,” she underscored.

However, Wanjiku said her objective is to ensure that elderly people live their twilight years in bliss and comfort, free from any sort of stress.
