In her younger years Maria broke both legs, which never healed properly. She now lives with constant pain and uses crutches to walk. However, she can’t afford pain medicine, since the small government pension she receives isn’t even enough to cover the cost of food and other bills.

Last year Maria started receiving monthly food parcels from CAM sponsors. She is so grateful for this lift that helps provide for herself and her mentally disabled daughter. A parcel of food means Maria can use more of her pension to buy pain medication and pay other bills. Thank you, supporters, for caring for the elderly who struggle to survive.
