Age International healthcare
For sick and frail older people like Candeado, walking a few steps can be difficult and painful, let alone walking the 5 miles to the nearest hospital.
Even if he does get to a hospital he’s unlikely to receive treatment. Many doctors and nurses aren’t even trained to help older people. Many others ignore people in later life simply because they are old.
We think this is wrong and we want to do whatever it takes to stop this. Please donate now and help us provide healthcare where it is needed most.
How does Age International help?
With your help we can provide mobility aids and medical kits, train healthcare workers and carers.
Your support could help us provide mobile medical units - vehicles like vans, boats and even donkeys - to reach vulnerable older people in need.
Your support could mean older people can live a healthy later life. A healthy older person is more likely to escape poverty.
Give now to change a life.
Age International works in more than 30 of the world’s poorest countries. Our four priorities are: reducing poverty, improving health, claiming rights and providing emergency relief for older people.
