Law Reform Commission Appeal on Elderly

August 4th, 2013

Due to the changing family structure of Nepal, there has been an increase in the number of senior citizens who are now in old age homes without anyone to take care of them or even provide them with meals and medicine on time. Even those from affluent families after having the control of property disregard their elderly leaving them vulnerable. Therefore WHR has submitted an appeal with Law Reform Commission of Nepal requesting to legally bind adult working children to provide 15% of income earned to their parents.  WHR is very interested in hearing your views and opinion on this. Please let us know your views!!
