International day for elders falls on October 1 and Sri Lanka celebrates Children’s Day and Elders’ Day on the same day, October 1. Following the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, the UN chief said it fears children and elders will be exposed to untold suffering but Sri Lanka has succeeded in controlling the Covid-19 pandemic with accolades from the UN and the WHO. The 30th anniversary of the International Day of Older Persons and the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child will also be celebrated. Pic: Hirantha Gunathilaka
