Our vision is a world in which all older people fulfill their potential to lead dignified, active, healthy and secure lives.

HelpAge International

The contribution older women and men make to society – as carers, advisors, mediators, mentors and breadwinners – is invaluable. But growing older is not without its problems. HelpAge International helps older people claim their rights, challenge discrimination and overcome poverty, so that they can lead dignified, secure, active and healthy lives. Our work in over 75 countries is strengthened through our global network of like-minded organisations – the only one of its kind in the world.

East Asia/Pacific Regional Office

In the East Asia and Pacific region, we have 20 affiliate organisations across 11 countries, along with HelpAge International country offices in Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar.

Our work covers various aspects and issues aiming at improving the lives of older people;
