Liberia in her good old day’s children used to adore their parents and look after them with love and care. But after 14 years of civil war in present days, most of the old people, when they become non earning members of the family or sick or really invalid are neglected and sometimes thrown out of their houses or rooms even. They become burden to their own children or close relatives who forget about the good things and sacrifices of their parents/ close relatives towards bringing them up and settling them in their life. Nobody is bothered to know what these old people actually require in the eves of their lives. Apart from the basic needs like shelter, food etc. It is the love, affection, and a few words of caress that these people expect from their children, which are totally lacking in most of the families whether rich or poor in our modern society.
This situation is faced especially by the old people who come from low and medium socio-economic status. Keeping all this in mind Mambu and Anneke Quoi started in 2008 with rice distributing at the gate to hungry poor elderly. It is Manneka’s wish that these aged people should live happily and peacefully in the eves of their lives.
With "Help the Aged" as our main motto, Manneka likes beside the distribution of rice at the gate, to distribute twice a year ( July 26 Liberia independence day/ December 25, Christmas) a food/hygiene package to the needed elderly in Monrovia and Bomi County. Manneka noticed also that because of the poverty, elderly people were not able to purchase a long lasting insectide treated mosquito net neither they can afford to spend the money for travelling to the nearest clinic and paying fees for malaria treatment.
