Because WE ARE HUMANS

In the spirit of kinship and in contrast to alienation, in order to remind ourselves of those simple truths that make us Humans, we implement the charity campaign “Because WE ARE HUMANS!” in support of elderly people.

The elderly in Bulgaria, forgotten in their homes, live quietly in their old age. Left to themselves, with their pain and sadness, they gradually die away in a world in which they are mentioned only on grand occasions, before elections and at population counts. At all other times the elderly sink into oblivion, alone in their rooms, enfolded in silence. Somehow people easily forget the simple truth that the elderly are citizens with full rights like any human being in Bulgaria and as such they have the right to live with dignity.

Caritas supports the elderly with the Home Care service in this undeniable right. The professional, long-term support of the nurses and home carers from the mobile teams at the Home Care Centers of Caritas brings peace of mind to the elderly that there is somebody to step across the threshold of their homes, to lend a sympathetic ear, to take care of their health, to share their worries.

The professional care at their homes, provided by a person who has become their friend and who brings them peace of mind, comfort and confidence is also the strongest motivator of the desire for life and the way to living with dignity in their old age.

Be a part of our cause. Let’s join together to help the elderly live with dignity in their old age. Because WE ARE HUMANS and because the right to live with dignity is an undeniable right of every human being.

In order to provide long-term complex (health and social) home care to one elderly person per one month, BGN 90 are needed. Here are included: transport expenses that are needed by the teams at the Caritas Home Care Centers to reach the homes of the elderly people (a total of 11 cars at 8 of the Centers), administrative expenses of 8 of the Caritas Home Care Centers; salaries for the nurses and the home carers at 8 of the Centers (a total of 21 people, of which 12 nurses and 9 home carers).
