Elderly and disability centres on four islands in the Cook Islands have benefitted from a partnership between the Asian Development Bank and the government.

The partnership worth about 150,000 US dollars is to ensure the quality of life for the elderly and the disabled is improved.

The money will allow home based care services to be provided in Rarotonga, Mauke, Mangaia and Atiu.
