About The Event

Let's understand Elders Helpline - 1090

Elder Abuse is an issue many refrain from acknowledging that it exists.

Elder abuse includes physical, emotional, or sexual harm inflicted upon an older adult, their financial exploitation, or neglect of their welfare.

WHO data suggests that around 4 to 6 percent of elders suffer from some form of abuse, a large percentage of which goes unreported.

The need of the hour is for the communities & individuals to come forward to understand the support systems available for senior citizens and to spread awareness on the same, ensuring that they live safely - without fear of getting hurt, exploited, or neglected.

In this regard, VFC India invites you for an interactive session with an official from Elders Helpline to know how the helpline works and to understand how YOU as an individual can help senior citizens lead a dignified life.

Date: June 21, Sunday
