Prior to the creation of Icurea Foundation, the leadership has been participating under a similar umbrella project called “Caring for the elderly”(Elderly Project).This project has been operating since it’s inauguration in 2016. The vision for the Elderly Project was to provide a holiday season filled with love and joy for the seniors in the community. We particularly chose the Christmas season because this is a holiday filled with family traditions and gift exchanges.
We chose the nursing home because most seniors in the home have mostly busy family members who live far away or some have no family members to care or visit during this period. We decided to bridge the gap to loneliness by buying gifts for the seniors and distributing it around Christmas day.
Volunteers of this project work tirelessly to purchase each gift, wrap them individually and present the gift to a low-income nursing home around the Houston vicinity.
