Su Aid to help out re­ti­re­ment ho­mes

Times of Suriname - - ENGELS -

Su Aid is al­so ma­king pre­pa­ra­ti­ons to help out the less for­tu­na­te this year. This year the or­ga­ni­za­ti­on will col­lect do­na­ti­ons for se­ni­or ci­ti­zens be­cau­se they need all the help they can get due to the pre­ca­rious sta­te of the na­ti­on’s eco­no­my.

Sid­ney Grun­berg, se­cre­ta­ry and tre­a­su­rer at SU Aid, is ur­ging eve­ry­bo­dy to lend a hel­ping hand. He told Ti­mes of Su­ri­na­me that Su Aid ne­ver had any doubts about con­ti­nuing the pro­ject des­pi­te the pre­ca­rious sta­te of the na­ti­on’s eco­no­my. He ex­plai­ned that the se­ni­or ci­ti­zens need sup­port be­cau­se they ha­ve wor­ked for so­ci­e­ty du­ring their youn­ger ye­ars. Grun­berg poin­ted out that Su Aid has re­gu­lar spon­sors who ma­ke a do­na­ti­on eve­ry year. “But if eve­ry Su­ri­na­me­se ci­ti­zen do­na­tes SRD 1, Su Aid can col­lect SRD 500,000,” said Grun­berg who ad­ded that the or­ga­ni­za­ti­on has al­rea­dy as­ked the Mi­ni­stry of So­ci­al Af­fairs and Hou­sing (So­za­vo) a list with the na­mes of all the re­ti­re­ment ho­mes. Su Aid has al­rea­dy con­tac­ted the old folks’ ho­mes to ask them to hand in pro­jects. The or­ga­ni­za­ti­on will then eva­lu­a­te each pro­ject to de­ter­mi­ne which re­ti­re­ment ho­mes ur­gent­ly need mo­ney. The do­na­ti­ons will be used to fi­nan­ce the pro­jects. “Last year Su Aid col­lec­ted about SRD 325,000,” said zegt Grun­berg who ad­ded that the or­ga­ni­za­ti­on will pu­blish a half-ye­ar­ly re­port to show the na­ti­on which pro­jects we­re fi­nan­ced with the do­na­ti­ons.
