Chandigarh:
 Speaking to Newsline, Mathew Cherian, Chief Executive Officer of HelpAge India, said, “In India, over 90 million people are aged above 60 years and the number is likely to reach 326 million by 2050. A majority of the people falling in this age group are finding themselves marginalised without the support of family and social security. In the first phase of SAVE we have started with few such activities where children get to spend quality time with their grandparents and other old people”.
