Feeding the poor for broken promises

Q: Can I delay the expiation for broken promises until I get enough money to feed poor people? Its already maybe four or five years since I know I should pay kaffarah but now I think insha-Allah within two months I can pay kaffarah. So should I wait or should I start fasting? Right now I cannot fast because of my health condition. 

A: Yes, if you cannot fast straight away and expiate through fasting.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
