Fewer and fewer elderly people on Saba have family around them who can look after them. Shopping or cooking is no longer possible for them. Fresh vegetables and fruit are expensive. Living on a small pension is no longer sufficient.
The Samenwerkende Fondsen Cariben supported an initiative in which healthy warm meals were delivered to the elderly. The volunteers who deliver the meals have a chat and help with small jobs where necessary. This way the elderly can live longer at their own home.
