HONOUR THE ELDERLY

As life expectancy increases in developing countries so too does the number of elderly people living in developing countries. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that 200 million of the 355 people older than 65 years are in the developing countries. Elderly people in developing countries have become especially vulnerable because of the rapid social changes occurring in many of these countries. Migration, Urbanisation, Changes in value systems and Aspirations, Changes in the role of women and the breakdown of the family system have eroded traditional family support system.

Therefore, elderly people suddenly find themselves poor, vulnerable, neglected, and without power or influence. Moreover, almost all developing countries do not provide even a basic social security safety net to cover the simplest of needs such as food and accommodation.

HOW YOU CAN HELP!

To sponsor an elderly person costs just £14 per month and this donation will help improve an elderly person’s life. It helps them enjoy the latter stages of their lives with reasonable access to the basic facilities including health, food, accommodation, travelling, pocket money and participation in social activities.
