In the coming weeks, the United Nations will be celebrating their annual ‘International Day of Charity’. A yearly event lead on the 5th of September, this day is set aside to acknowledge the vital significance of generous charity in the process of not only eradicating global poverty, but many contemporary issues faced by the global community. The United Nations acknowledge the important part played by non government organisations in the instilling of human rights, and therefore deem this celebration to be one of great relevance and significance in their annual calendar.
One of many significant landmarks of the United Nation’s year, the ‘International Day of Charity’ is an important reminder of our call as global citizen’s to act in ways that improve the livelihood of our brothers and sisters across the planet.
