Warm food for elderly, sick and lonely people

Our Home Care Program staff provide 30 people with a cooked meal during their daily home visits. The meals are prepared by a refugee family from Lebanon for whom we provide sheltered employment at our social enterprise, Bistro Caristo. The food is based on Bulgarian recipes, although Caristo is popular for its authentic Lebanese taste. Lunch includes soup, main course and bread. The funds are from private donors to whom we are very grateful! We need BGN 160 per day to continue with the meals.


Alongside this, our mobile team (nurses and a social assistant) make around 20 home visits daily to people who are in poor health, have difficulty moving and have no one to care for them. Staff listen to them and provide medical, hygiene and social care.
