Sccf Free Elderly Medi-Care Initiative.

Good health is imperative for older people to remain independent and continue to contribute to their families and communities, but our nation is loosing her elders which is having a negative impact on the value, culture and tradition of the nation. In recent years the population of the older people who are to teach the younger generation more about culture and tradition are decreasing rapidly within the nation.

Also the new generations have not been able to learn so much from the values and experience acquired by elders because the elders don’t live longer enough to teach them any more.
