NOAH (Neighbourhood Old Age Homes) is a model of housing and service for the poor, needy and vulnerable old people in South Africa. NOAH has a hugely important goal. They are creating a better South Africa for the elderly, ensuring the disparities between rich and poor are broken down. They are also setting up a framework that will ensure that they reach more poor and vulnerable old people than ever before.
With 13 homes (houses in residential areas acquired for this purpose) spread over eight areas, NOAH, since it was founded in 1981, has developed an exemplary model of health, home and happiness, and has been a good way of meeting a burgeoning need for safe, affordable housing for the elderly.
