Ana is a 64-year-old woman with walking disability. She lives alone in an old house with cracked walls that could collapse on her at any time. With a monthly income of only 30 euros in social assistance, she cannot afford to pay all the utilities. She has to choose – water or electricity.
She chose water. The electricity was turned off.
She performs her physical needs in a bucket because she has no toilet.
But what we notice about her is that she keeps her house very clean. Once a week she visits a grocery store, which she can barely reach because of her mobility problems. Occasionally she gets a piece of blackened fruit or an unsold loaf of bread there.
For Ana, bread is vital in addition to water, which she is fortunate to already have. A freshly baked one would certainly bring her a lot of joy. She could experience that someone cares for her.
