If not for the efforts of a few caring volunteers, these seniors would have nowhere to go.
Shockingly, poverty in Myanmar (formerly Burma) has driven its people to abandon their elderly.
Sick and unable to take care of themselves, older family members are often abandoned on the side of the road, at railway stations, or even in cemeteries.
There are even reports of the elderly, left to die, bloodied and beaten atop garbage heaps.
With little to no government help for the elderly, senior citizens have to rely on family members to take care of them, and reports of the abandoned elderly are on the rise, according to a report at Channel News Asia (CAN).
Daw Khin Ma Ma is one of a few individuals who have stepped forward to help these sick elderly live in comfort for the last days of their lives. She is the vice-president of Twilight Villa, a nursing home in Myanmar, which takes in the abandoned elderly when nobody else will.
