The Ministry of Social Services and Urban Development and the National Council on Older Persons held a press conference Thursday at the Ministry to announce activities to celebrate Older Persons Month 2018, under the theme “Celebrating Older Human Rights Champions,” to be observed in October.

Among activities are a church service, a picnic, a workshop, and a Nation Builder’s Award ceremony.  The month is used to celebrate the older citizens of the country and let them know they too are loved and respected by the people of the nation and the government.
