Today we celebrate the second world day for grandparents & the elderly. 
The theme for this year’s World Day is “In old age they will still bear fruit” (Psalm 92:15) and emphasizes how grandparents and the elderly are a value and a gift both for society and for communities. 
But what about the grandparents & the elderly who actually have no grandchildren around  & are  abandoned by their own children & are just absolutely lonely in this world with no roof, no food and no one to even talk too. 
Few days back, we accepted into our home a goan elderly lady aged 70 years who is a grand parent but just left to fend all alone . 
Orphaned at a very early age and never ever received love from her parents. 
Settled down in life,  but again no peace of mind . 
Worked all her life but her only son abandoned her and went abroad. 
At 70 years she has been putting in her best to work but the damages are too much both in mind and body. 
She has been trying her level best to get a free home to stay but no one actually understood her. 
Finally she got in touch with us and we took her in and assured her that till she leaves this planet she will be looked aftered and cared for . 
You and I together can be a Child or a grandchild to such elderly people who are homeless and in need of a free place to stay. 
One thing I have observed and understood although I am very impatient and very straight forward ie The prayers and blessings of the elderly and abandoned are very effective. 
God surely must be hearing their prayers . 
If there are such lonely & abandoned  Goan grandparents looking for free shelter and are really poor please let's help them . 
Celebrating on paper Grandparents & elderly day without actually helping such oldies is not exciting. 
We need to walk the talk and not just ignore. 
Both our women homes are overloaded but we can always adjust , squeeze, accommodate if the need arises . 
Starting soon another two such free women homes for the poor abandoned homeless street women which can take in another 30 ladies.
