How you can help
Advance the well-being and inclusion of older people around the world.
Older people are disproportionately affected by natural disasters. 65% of people who perished during the 2011 Japanese tsunami were 60+ as were 29% of deaths from the Nepal earthquake and 70% of deaths from Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
In everyday life, older people's challenges abound. Those who have been poor their whole lives often become even poorer in older age. Globally, over half of people 60+ lack a secure income and 60% of older people cannot access healthcare due to the costs.
