As we observe United Nations' 24th International Day of the Older Persons with carnivals, exhibitions, talks and workshops, let us not forget the plight and rights of millions of the elderly who are living in poverty, who are struggling with poor health, and who are victims of abuse and discrimination.
Singapore is officially celebrating this special day for the first time with a month-long program of activities to engage senior citizens. Click on the links to find out what the government has drawn up for senior citizens in October.
