    Dear Sir,
    In today’s increasingly dynamic, fast moving, inter-connected and educated world, ironically it has been observed that our senior citizens are being left behind in respect of their care and due respects. Their own children, legalheirs and kins are by and large behaving indifferently to the needs/care of their own senior citizens. Socio-moral values in these regards are unfortunately showing downward trends.

    You may be aware that Govt of India has passed a very important law namely “The Maintenance and welfare of parents and senior citizen act 2007” to address the aforesaid issue. It has been observed that, the corporate social responsibilities in today’s corporate sector, along with various governmental and non-governmental endeavors in this regard are increasing day by day.

    We at Mata Pita Samman Sewa Trust are engaged in spreading the massage contained in the aforesaid law ( “The Maintenance and welfare of parents and senior citizen act 2007” ) through our awareness programs, apart from organizing various types of welfare programs/activities by providing social, moral and financial assistance to helpless and poor parents for betterment of their lively hood. We also manage to provide to deserving, needy, poor parents cloths, food, day care facilities, and other articles required by them. We help them to get medical/healthcare and legal assistance as and when required.

    It is stated that we need financial assistance to run the aforesaid program in various parts of India.you are therefor requested to kindly provide some funds to us to enable us to contribute to this important and noble cause.

    Regards
