Inflation in the countries where we work and the eroding purchasing power of sponsorship dollars make it hard to deliver a consistent level of assistance to grandparents around the world. An increase of a few dollars in your monthly contribution will help us keep benefits strong for all our seniors in the sponsorship program, including your sponsored grandparent, regardless of variations in local economies. With your support, sponsored Grandparents in HelpAge Canada programs can meet their daily needs and live secure healthy lives with dignity.
Birthday: September 14, 1951
A native to Dominica, Celina is a single woman who is 68 years old. Although she has three daughters, they are poor themselves and unable to support their mother. Celina speaks, reads, and writes English.
Celina is in relatively good health. She does, however, have high blood pressure and a bad knee.
In her younger days Celina worked hard to help support her family by labouring as a domestic worker. She no longer has a sufficient source of income to cover her basic needs, and she struggles to get by. She strives to raise as much of her own food as she can and enjoys gardening in her backyard. Despite her difficult circumstances, Celina remains grateful for what she has and prays her thanks throughout the day.
Sponsorship for Celina will assist in the provision of food, medication, and many other items of basic need. Just as importantly, your assistance will let her know that someone cares. Thank you so much.
