Population ageing has become a global concern in the past two decades, improvement in the health care systems, decreased fertility rates and reduction in child mortality have contributed to the phenomenon.
Living alone poses a high risk of poor health conditions and outcomes among older persons, poor psychological wellbeing, threatens their financial and social wellbeing and the $8 received by the seniors above 65 years from our Ugandan government is least to help them access the quality basics of life for example food, medical care and water.
In addition, the HIV/AIDS epidemic has virtually left most of the older persons to reside alone or with grandchildren due to the loss of their adult children.

The ability to meet their basics for healthy ageing is vital and that is our aim for all the years we have been walking with them.
