Gallery | World Elder Abuse Awareness Day
Instead of enjoying their twilight years, many older persons are living in fear of victimisation, abuse and neglect… at times at the mercy of unscrupulous family members. On 15 June the world acknowledges World Elder Abuse Awareness Day to highlight the fact that, to abuse older persons in any way is completely unacceptable. The organisation invites you to create this awareness in your communities as well.
It is our duty to fight the scourge of elder abuse! Many older persons fought the fight for liberation, yet they are still bound by the shackles of poverty, abuse and neglect. They face undue hardships but suffer in silence as they cannot fend for themselves.
