Today (15 June) is the World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. ?♂️?♀️
According to the statistics conducted by the Census and Statistics Department of the HKSAR, there are 488 newly reported elder abuse cases in 2019, however, the actual number might be much higher than reported. In many parts of the world, elder abuse exists with little recognition or response. ?? Let’s reduce elder abuse by staying connected and building a network among our community. ?
