Brighten the Lives of our Elders


Emma was once an accountant at the Ministry of Health, “I used to live very well.” Due to a stroke and due to her chronic medical problems she has great difficulty moving around, “I try and get up in the morning, make some food and clean the kitchen if I can, but then I need to lay down. I spend most of my day in bed. I have not been out of the building for 10 years.” Emma confirms that there is a strong bond between herself and Gohar, the Red Cross nurse who visits her regularly, “She is like a daughter to me, she’s very good”.
