How are Lolo and Lola? Care for the Elders amid Pandemic through Operation Blessing!

Have you ever wondered what happens to the lolos and lolas during the pandemic?

While people of all ages are affected in some way by the pandemic, COVID-19 has struck the most vulnerable groups such as the elderly.

They are far more likely to contract the disease or suffer the most severe health complications, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

You might think it’s the biggest risk they face due to old age or possible underlying health conditions, but sadly, there is much more than that.

Apart from being defenseless against the virus, older people are also grappling with decreased access to essential services and lack of food. Senate of the Philippines press release cites that of the 8 million senior citizens in the country, only 32% receive social pension.

What happens to the rest?

Most of them would only rely on their families who may also be struggling to survive amid pandemic. It only pushes them to an even more vulnerable condition.

That is why support for our elderly kababayans is proven to be even more crucial today! 

Through your faithful giving, Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines, CBN Asia’s humanitarian arm, was able to supply much-needed relief items to the sick, elderly people in some areas in Manila, Bulacan, and Rizal.

Aside from receiving vitamins and other medical assistancethe beneficiaries also received the message of hope and comforting prayers through our church partner and volunteers.

The pandemic has magnified the vulnerability of elderly Filipinos who belong to low-income households. It is the reality for our lolos and lolas, but their reality doesn’t have to remain that way.

You can help care for them in the comfort of your own home!
