International Elderly Day


On October 1 in Kyrgyzstan, as in many countries around the world, is celebrated the International Day of Older Persons, a holiday established by the UN General Assembly in 1991.


From September 26 to September 28 the "Let's help grandparents” event was organized in Bishkek. The Red Crescent of Kyrgyzstan initiated this event in the hypermarket Globus. In the hypermarket, special boxes for collecting food were installed. At the end of our charity event, we gathered pasta, sweets, butter, cereals, sugar. We thank every resident who helped us to help the elderly people. On this day also, the Red Crescent employees visited a boarding house for elderly "Ardager" in Bishkek and distributed all the collected products to them. In the boarding house "Ardager" are treated to 1000 elderly people. We thank Globus hypermarket for assistance in organizing the charity event.
