Amnesty International is relentlessly focused on protecting civilian lives and ensuring international humanitarian law and human rights law are upheld. Older people are disproportionately affected by war and conflict. They are often less physically able to evacuate their homes, or just reluctant to leave. Our investigators are working with older people in Ukraine and other countries and your support could help our campaign to defend their rights by helping to amplify our demands for a UN convention that enshrines protections for older people into International law

We all have the right to a decent standard of living, including adequate food, housing, medical care and social services. But millions of older people in Ukraine and worldwide are at risk of having these rights denied. Your donation could help us investigate and expose further human rights violations and breaches of international law.

Amnesty International has a unique position at times like these. Our research expertise means we can access those at risk and expose the threats to human rights they are facing. Our reputation and advocacy expertise mean when we publish our findings and push for change we are listened to.

With your gift today, we could expand our investigations on the ground in Ukraine and elsewhere, while also focusing on our campaign for talks towards a UN convention on older people’s rights to finally begin. No such convention currently exists, but the situation in Ukraine is just the latest example of why a UN convention is so badly needed.

Everyone at Amnesty International is determined to safeguard older people’s human rights – in Ukraine and across the world. But we can only shine a light on human rights abuses and demand an end to the unlawful Russian war with support from people like you.
