Peru (2018), like its neighbor countries, shows a significant increasing number in the percentage of elderly people. It is estimated that by 2025, the amount of elderly people in the country will go over 13% of the total number of inhabitants.
South American countries face advanced aging compared to what has been the reality in European countries. In the old continent, the aging process took approximately four times more than in South America.
Apurimac is the second poorest region in the country, affecting up to 31,8% of the regional population. “Celina” photographic project makes the hard conditions in which elderly people live visible. These “lucky” elderly manage to obtain a place in the only shelter for abandoned elderly people that exist in the region, “Hogar Madre Celina del Niño Jesús”.
