Loyalty to older people creates happiness for the whole family

11 May 2010

This week we received a very heart warming video from our partner El Wedad, in Gaza.

The film was made as part of HelpAge's DEC funded project, which includes psychosocial assistance for older people, carried out by El Wedad. The film was produced to raise awareness of the issues older people face.

El Wedad worked in homes and schools educating families and grandchildren on the abilities and needs of older people.

The message behind it (translated from the Arabic on the screen) is that "Loyalty to older people creates happiness for the whole family"
