15th June – World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

The UN General Assembly has designated June 15 as World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. Elder abuse is an increasing and serious problem that affects health and human rights so it is vital to raise awareness of it and thus prevent it whenever and wherever possible.

VoiVa Coop’s on-going Erasmus+ projects Two Moons and TISOVA aim to prevent and raise awareness of violence against older people. Two Moons project specifically focuses on older people’s human rights. For the WEAAD this year, the project partners co-created a campaign video on older people’s human rights. See it below.
