Older people are critical contributors to family, community, and society. They are both the largest growing and the most underserved population in the world.
Day-to-day existence is a struggle for many elderly persons in developing Countries. As political, social, and environmental pressure rises, forced migration, loss of income and armed conflict places these, our seniors, in vulnerable and life threatening positions.
HelpAge Canada wants everyone who reaches old age to lead a secure, healthy, dignified life. With our partners, we are active in Canada and around the world supporting seniors and their communities.
