The senior population has been the hardest hit by the virus, which has had a great impact on their daily lives.

Don Ricardo recalled how important his grandchildren are, whom he does not see with the same regularity as before the pandemic. “They are my gold bars, I tell them that, they have never left me alone, either by phone or in person, keeping the measurements, they always helped me to be firm,” Don Ricardo said during the call.

Don Rigoberto, at 83 years old and after having overcome three types of cancer, remains optimistic: “I would like to live more than a hundred years, when I have needed the Caja, they have always been there, and now with the vaccines, I cannot say more than it is a great blessing”.

President Alvarado admired the courage shown by these seniors to face the drastic changes that the pandemic brought to their lives, at the same time that he reminded them of how valuable seniors are to the country, to children, and grandchildren. The President also made them see that the country’s great effort is to save lives and keep families together for much longer.
