U.S. chaplains share blessings with the elderly

A statue of Saint Jeanne Jugan rests in the courtyard of Nyumba Ya Wazee, or Home of the Elderly, May 9, 2016, in Nairobi, Kenya. Jugan was the foundress of the Little Sisters of the Poor, an organization devoted to helping the less fortunate around the world. The home of the elderly is a sub-organization of the Little Sisters of the Poor that provides shelter and care for older members of society who do not have means to care for themselves.
