HelpAge asked older people around the world how ageism affected them. Watch this strong and honest short video which they made for International Older Persons Day 2016. As Alberto from Bolivia says in this film, 'Everyone will become older. We must be prepared. This affects all of us — older and younger'. We are all united in ageing, let's all unite against ageism.

HelpAge is also taking a stand against ageism, have a look at their site here
