These Older People Were Beaten And Robbed By Their Kin  

Elderly abuse on rise.    


Elderly abuse, neglect, violence and exploitation are some of the major issues faced by senior citizens and the data from World Health Organisation indicate that 4 to 6 percent of elderly people suffer from some or other form of abuse and a large percentage of it goes unreported.  

The United Nations has designated June 15 as World Elder Abuse Awareness Day that aims to get global attention on the severe problem of physical, emotional and financial abuse of the elderly. Not many have the courage to speak against injustice but there are a few who after facing atrocities, some even at the hands of their own family, have shown courage and stood up to protest the wrong.
