Elder Abuse Day

CCCIS hosted 2 Elder Abuse Sessions in June 2024  to raise awareness within the Chinese community  on elder abuse and encourage seniors to seek help if they experience abusive situations. Often, due to language barriers and cultural backgrounds, many victims prefer to remain silent and tolerate their abuse. Through a combination of an information session,  role-play, and an art activity,  CCCIS aspires to enhance awareness of the rights of older people to a warm safe home, free from any form of abuse, whether it be from  family members or others. Additionally,  resources on community services were distributed to all participants, ensuring they know where to seek help if needed.
