More older people are impacted by the war in Ukraine than in any other conflict in the world. Millions of these older people also have disabilities, and 80 percent of them live below the poverty line. Amnesty International researcher Laura Mills and a guest speaker will discuss ‘How can humanitarian support for Ukraine take into account the needs of these people?’
The short documentary film ‘Dreaming in the Shadows’ by the independent Ukrainian director Marina Chankova will also be shown. The film features three older people in Ukraine who have been displaced by or are still living in areas directly impacted by the war. The film shows how these people all try to hold onto their dignity and independence in the midst of brutal war, and highlights the dreams and hopes they have for the future.
The event will be held in English and German.
