Anurag Dubey, who runs a mineral water bottling plant at Hiran Magri, has taken a noble step forward by setting up the ‘Senior Citizen Care Charitable Trust’ in order to assist the senior citizens of the city.
Presently, there are 4 trustees supporting this trust, which augments support, assistance and a feeling of belonging for aged citizens who are staying alone. The trust currently has 60 registered members and this count is rising by the day. The trust’s office is in Sector-5, Hiran Magri.
The trust is the one of its kind in the city, as they are providing free of cost assistance to senior citizens that including regular visits to their homes, group meetings, group visits, outings, counseling, depositing their monthly telephone, electricity and water bills through cheques, medical checkups, etc. The entire activities are managed by a group of volunteers from the member group itself.
On how the idea took shape in his mind, Anurag Dubey has this to say – “In the course of my business, I noticed old people at home who are helpless or who don’t receive any social or family support. At this stage of life, they are left alone and some of them even go into depression. So, I decided to do something for them.”
He further added, “For members seeking financial help, we try to link them to individuals who are financially sound and are ready to help. As we are not getting any financial assistance at this point in time, we have our own restrictions and we are not able to meet such requirements.”
The registration in the charitable trust is free.
The trust can be contacted on 98290 69768; 97994 94568 and one can visit their office at 3-d-59, Prabhat Nagar, Hiran Magri, Sector-5, Udaipur.
