HelpAge Walk (Photos)

Oct 1, 2010 6:34:31 AM - thesundayleader.lk

HelpAge Sri Lanka held its senior citizens walk earlier today.

HelpAge Sri Lanka is part of an international non profit organisation which seeks to protect the rights of marginalised and vulnerable senior citizens. Since its inception in 1986, HelpAge aims to improve the quality of life of all Sri Lankan senior citizens, irrespective of race, caste or religion.

Among other things, the organisation provides health and eye care and trains volunteers in voluntary home care.

They also assisted in providing livelihood assistance and construction of houses, latrines and wells for the tsunami affected.
