Taking good care of the elderly cannot be done alone by the government, non-government or religious organisations as there has to be a concerted effort from all stakeholders, including every member of the society to give love and care our elders deserve.

Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation, Mereseini Vuniwaqa while speaking at the International Day of Older Persons at the Labasa Golden Age Home says it is everybody’s responsibility to provide support and care to our elderly people.

Vuniwaqa said this was a week to celebrate and pay tribute to the contribution of our senior citizens in nation building.

There was a March by schools, Government officials, Non-Government Organisations, stakeholders and members of the community through the Labasa Town to mark this day
