International Day of Older Persons

Older age is different for all of us. But ageist stereotypes make us believe we all become frail and helpless when we get older. This leads to lack of autonomy to make decisions, exclusion from our communities and elder abuse. HelpAge International created this content to highlight ageism on the occasion of the celebration of the International Day of Older Persons. 

The creation of this platform was possible through the support of German Humanitarian Assistance, Aktion Deutschland Hilft and NAK-KArITATIV.
