Everyone is interested in what’s happening in China, given the fact that theirs is one of the most rapidly growing ageing populations. And the challenges for caring for their 150 million older adults seem daunting. That’s more elderly in China than the entire population of Australia!!!

We’ve been following a newly formed group in China called Community Alliance, an independent local grassroots non-profit public interest organization. Their goal is to empower and support underprivileged and underserved communities in China; to ensure social justice and welfare for the elderly, especially elder women and those who are among the most disadvantaged in communities; and to protect the rights of the elderly as part of the struggle for legal rights and social progress in China.
