ENOC Group celebrated the International Day for Older Persons, in collaboration with Beit Al Khair Society, as part of the nation’s ‘Year of Zayed’ initiative.

ENOC has created a new activity each month for this initiative and the theme for October is the ‘Month of Values’.

ENOC Group employees visited the Seniors' Happiness Center run by Dubai Health Authority, along with volunteers from Beit Al Khair Society, and organised a series of interactive activities for the elderly.

According to the UN, almost 700mn people are now over the age of 60 and an estimated 2bn people, which is 20% of the world’s population will be 60, or older by 2050.

As a result, The International Day for Older Persons has been announced and is held every year on 1 October, to encourage an inclusiveness and integration of older members into the local community through initiating programmes that can enable them to become participating members of the community.
