Memories & The Secret To A Happy Marriage: International Day of Older Persons

02 October 2020

On 1 October, UNRWA and the United Nations family enthusiastically observe the International Day of Older Persons. This year, we celebrate the wisdom of the older generation of Palestine refugees. These elders are not only custodians of collective Palestinian memory, identity and culture, but role models for new generations of Palestine refugees. Together with the European Union, we spent some time with two Palestine refugee couples in Lebanon who shared their memories with us—along with the secret to a long, happy marriage. #UNIDOP2020 #EU_UNRWA
