World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

Yes, there is such a day, as designated by the United Nations. World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) is on June 15 each year. Incredibly ironic for my family, as that is also Mercy’s birthday.


Worldwide, many organisations now run awareness campaigns before the day and host events on June 15. Please do check in your local area for events. You can show your support for this cause by sporting the purple ribbon.
