CP Foods’ Fund for Elderly project reaches 10th anniversary of supporting underprivileged seniors

Charoen Pokphand Foods Public Company Limited (CP Foods) celebrates 10th anniversary of its “CPF Fund for Elderly” project by providing multiple supports to over three hundred senior citizens living in poverty across the country, driving Thailand toward becoming a quality aging society.

The aim of this project and the fund is to find a sustainable solution to continuously support the elderly aged above 60 years old surrounding the factories and farms who are neglected, unaided, or impoverished. The project continues to add new participants annually.

 

The company has supported a total number of 869 underprivileged elders in the past decade. As of 2021, there are 345 participants in the project.

 

Under the scheme, the company provides financial support for 2,000 Baht per person every month for a lifetime. Also, CP Foods provides food and consumer staples as well as making a monthly visit to increase their quality of life and enable them to live happily.
