Elderly in poverty are given food, blankets, clothing, medication and toiletries on a regular basis.
The "Feeding Seniors in Indian Slums" Program began by feeding elderly people in five slums of Bangalore and plans to extend to other slums in a phased manner.
The organization houses other programs such as health camps which provide free health care to elderly in poverty and recreation centers across Bangalore.
The aim of the "Ashvasan Foundation" is to enable a life of dignity, emotionally, spiritually and materially for seniors across the city of Bangalore.
