In all countries of the world, people with disabilities are the largest minority group. As a group they are starved of services & facilities available to the non-disabled and, consequently, are least nourished, least healthy, least educated and least employed. They are subjected to a long history of neglect, isolation, segregation, poverty, deprivation, charity and even pity. The senior citizens are also God’s own wisdom passed on to the younger generations and society and that needs to be preserved and rewarded. The special care which senior citizens require thus needs no mention.
