Older People

By providing food, warmth, shelter, medicine and home repairs we provide a lifeline to thousands of older people in our partner communities.

By providing food, warmth, shelter, medicine and home repairs we provide a lifeline to thousands of older people in our partner communities. We support community centres to   help relieve the social isolation so many elderly people face on a day to day basis. Our programmes seek to support older people, often both victims of historical persecution and crippling poverty, live with dignity and respect.
