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: April 5, 1938
Born on April 5, 1938, Remy is almost 84 years old! He is a strong man, given the average life span in Haiti is 63 years old. He is married. He and his wife have 6 children, two sons and four daughters. Their children are impoverished themselves and unable to help support their Mum and Dad which saddens them deeply.
Remy was born in the arrondissement of Boette, Camp Perrin, Haiti. Working hard all of his life, Remy supported his family by working as a farmer on an estate. Education was so important to he and his wife. They spent all of their savings, giving them to their children so they could have a better life than their own. Sadly, Haiti has little opportunity.
Remy’s health is quite fair. He awaits a surgery for a hernia if it is afforded him. Remy has always been a hardworking and loving family man and is grateful for his health, to see his grandchildren grow and he hopes for a better future for them. He needs help though, as the means are just not there.
HelpAge Canada has collaborated with this partner caring organization for many years, helping extremely vulnerable elderly persons who might otherwise not survive. Your valuable sponsorship will assist in the provision of food, clothing, and many other basic necessities for Remy. Just as importantly, he will know that someone cares about him.
