HelpAge International has a vision of a world in which all older people fulfill their potential to lead dignified, healthy active and secure lives. HelpAge has been working in Sudan for over 20 years and has provided essential support and services to vulnerable older people and their dependants. HelpAge is committed to providing a community based approach to address the most pressing needs of older people and their dependents in West Darfur through the ongoing crisis. We seek to address the immediate needs of older people, while at the same time affecting some longer-term change. We are based in El Geneina, close to the Chadian border, where a high number of those displaced by the conflict are found.
