Elderly Individuals - Omega Component

Elderly ManThe elderly/ seniors in developing countries are at risk because of the adverse effects of widespread and pervasive poverty. The elderly/ seniors in these countries are marginalized and looked upon as unproductive and considered an economic burden.

Because of this, they suffer from poor health, loneliness and helplessness. Economic conditions cause daily stress and fear. They have a continuous struggle to obtain food, clothing and shelter in order to survive.

Senior couples will serve as foster parents to abandoned childrenElderly/ seniors are a source of ethical and moral precepts, imparting traditional values and culture. As such, they should be venerated as repositories of wisdom where the young may learn about life.

Elderly individuals/ seniors are a valuable resource. They are an excellent medium to be used as foster parents/ grandparents/ caregivers to these young children, as well as those of their own generation that are in need of help.

These older couples/ individuals serving as foster parents to abandoned children will be also the excellent teachers and mentors to the street children/ youth who have had no training in family skills or work skills. They will be able to instill the values and culture of the community.

Be shepherds of God's flock that is under your care, serving as overseers - not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. (1 Peter 5:2-3 NIV)
