Every year, charities all over the world help to save and improve people’s lives, fighting disease, protecting children, and giving hope to many thousands of people.
In 2012 the United Nations decided to nominate an annual International Day of Charity as an official day of recognition and celebration.
Sept 5th was chosen because it is the anniversary of the death of Mother Teresa of Calcutta.
To celebrate this special day every year, the work of different charities all over the word is celebrated, and we are encouraged to donate money and time, to carry out charitable works, and also to educate people and raise awareness about the many charitable issues worldwide.
If we can, we should.
