- We decided to mark this day by mobilizing volunteers and civil society and supporting the Elderly House in Pristina. The Elderly House was created in 1967 and, until recently, it was the only institution offering care and support to elderly persons in Kosovo. Today the house hosts 83 persons of different ethnicities and despite the support from the institutions, its personnel are still facing many challenges in guaranteeing adequate response to the numerous needs of its residents.
