This elderly woman from Eastern Europe is only a small example of family rejection. With this example, we can clearly see how much she struggles with loneliness and rejection.

Regardless of where, this problem remains the same everywhere. It is each family's responsibility to look after and respect older members of our family. They are our heritage and the memory of our ancestors.
