South Asia

(c) Chris Leslie   

HelpAge runs long-established programs in India, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh and smaller projects in Pakistan and Nepal.

We've also recently opened an office in Bangladesh and expanded our emergency work in Pakistan to help older people following recent floods.

Working mainly through older people's associations, we help older people get jobs, benefits and healthcare. We also work to cut the risks they face when disasters strike.

Where we work in South Asia

We work in the following countries:


Sri Lanka




What next?

  • We will campaign for healthcare, work opportunities and pensions for older people in Bangladesh, Nepal and Pakistan.
  • We will carry out longer-term relief work to help older people in Pakistan affected by flooding.
  • We will strengthen our relationships with key partners so that we can grow our programs and support to older people in South Asia.
