Abandoned Homeless Elderly Man

Donation protected
My name is Iman Kanaan. I'm trying to raise funds for the old man in the photo attached. 
This 84 year old man told me he was abandoned by his own son. He's been living on the streets of Beirut for the past three months. He spends his days on the pavement as shown in this photo and his nights at a close by mosque. 
People give him food and drink but this is not enough. 
I'm trying to fund enough money to secure him at least a two year stay in a Senior's Home ( Dar el 3ajaze). Should something happen to him before then, the money can be allocated to another senior in need. 
My heart is breaking.  This man is so sweet. He's fully concious and can have complete conversations. I think that his life would've been much easier if he did have a problem with his memory. At least then he'd forget the son he raised all these years only to have him thrown on the streets like this. 
Please help me help him as soon as possible.
Thank you in advance.
Ive been asked by gofundme to provide additional information. I'm Lebanese- Canadian. This man is called Abdallah and he's not related to me. I just saw him on the street in Beirut. Your donation money will be used towards paying the monthly fees for the seniors home which we will be contacting on Monday since their office is closed till then (because of EID Fitr).
The donated money will not be given to him in hand. It will be paid directly to the seniors home and I will be personally responsible for delivering the money. 
Thank you again
