Luanda — The minister of Social Assistance and Reintegration, João Baptista Kussumua, last Sunday in Luanda called on society to care more for the elderly, so that senior citizens can live in dignity and feel valued.
Speaking to the press, on the fringe of the Elderly People's Fair that took place in the Cidadela sports complex, João Baptista Kussumua appealed to the families to pay attention to the elderly for they are relics, great sources of wisdom and members of the society.
"It is necessary everyone's effort so that elderly people can have a long and healthy life", he said.
He explained that the state protects senior citizens and also has been creating the conditions for them to be able to contribute to the great processes and successes of the country.
The fair, which was organised to celebrate the Elderly People's National Day, was attended by government officials, senior staff of the Ministry of Social Assistance and Reintegration, as well as senior citizens from different parts of Luanda Province.
