People 60 + are the fastest growing demographic group
yet their needs are rarely considered.

In Canada chronic social isolation and loneliness has critical impacts on physical and mental health.

Internationally, older people suffer much more than others from non-communicable diseases but these health issues receive only 2.3% of development assistancei.

Less than 20% of older people receive a pension in low-income countriesii

Partner Agencies

Our partner charitable agencies work hard under challenging circumstances and with little means. In the countries where we work, there is little infrastructure or support for the needs of seniors. You can support us with a donation to our general fund where we will put your donation to where it is needed most.
