HelpAge International is a global network of not-for-profit organisations with a vision of a world where older people fulfil their potential to lead active, dignified, healthy and secure lives. With more than 70 affiliates and 300 partners across more than 50 countries the HelpAge International network brings together hundreds of organisations worldwide. HelpAge International has a secretariat with offices in London and Brussels, regional centres in Africa, East Asia/Pacific, South Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean and Central Asia, seven national programmes and a number of emergencies programmes.
HelpAge International has been operational in Haiti since 2009 with one national staff member and a number of small local partners operating on small ‘Sponsor a Grandparent’ grants. Following the earthquake, HelpAge launched a substantial emergency response (budget £3.5m) involving relief goods and health, livelihoods and protection support for older people and their dependents. The programme is now in transition to a longer term recovery and development programme with a focus on risk reduction and social protection.
