Testimonials

I am Fr. Cornel Omondi Oredo working in Iruma Parish. I have no experience in working with the aged but for the few days I have been with them, I saw the face of Jesus crying for love and care. We all hope to retire and live out our golden years in comfort and surrounded by friends and relatives. After years of working, raising families and contributing to society, many of us look forward to live a better life. This is not the case in our society today, our old people are dying of isolation, loneliness, lack of the basic needs.

 I am a lawyer by profession, and also the Organising Secretary of EFA. I have alwys felt a sense of fulfillment every time i give back to the society. This has motivated me to work with various charitable organizations. Spending time with the eldery has helped me develop a new application of life and family. Their is a certain charm to working with older people as they reach their so called twillight years, where in you provide care and support for them to live fulfilling lives. It only takes one decision to change
the world.

When we were young, the aged cared for us. Therefore it is our responsibility to take care of them. The aged need to be given a sense of purpose in life even though they are frail. They need to be treated with dignity. Sometimes I wonder why we see beauty in old trees but see nothing in an old person. It’s saddening to find the aged neglected, with untreated bed sores, soiled beddings and untreated diseases. We can only honour them by taking care of them and showing them love. To me, age is a gift from God and we can only glorify this gift by taking care of the aged. “Respect the elderly when you are young. Help the weak when you are strong, because one day you will grow old and become weak and you expect others to show you respect”.

Having worked in the ministry of labour, children and social protection I have developed a strong feeling that the aged need more attention on top of the government (O.P.C-T) older person Cash transfer program. The experience I have with Care givers of these senior citizens leaves’ a lot to be desired. It’s time we come together and extend the love of our Lord Jesus Christ in serving humanity and assisting the Kenya government in it’s endeavor to serve it’s citizens. Ethel foundation C.B.O was founded on these objectives. All people, organization and governments of good will are invited to join us in serving our Fathers and smothers who can not work for themselves because of advanced age, note we are all on this path.
