internationa-day-of-charityCharity contributes to the promotion of dialogue, solidarity and mutual understanding among people.

Poverty persists in all countries of the world, regardless of their economic, social and cultural situation, particularly in developing countries.

In recognition of the role of charity in alleviating humanitarian crises and human suffering within and among nations, as well as of the efforts of charitable organizations and individuals, including the work of Mother Teresa, the General Assembly of the United Nations on 7 March 2013 designated the 5th of September, the anniversary of the death of Mother Teresa in 1997, as the International Day of Charity.

Mother Teresa had dedicated her life to helping the poor and the disadvantaged people around the world. Her work for the poor was highlighted with the Nobel Prize in 1979.

On this International Day of Charity, the United Nations invites all Member States and all international and regional organizations, as well as civil society, including non-governmental organizations and individuals, to commemorate the Day in an appropriate manner, by encouraging charity, including through education and public awareness-raising activities.

In its fourth year, the International Day of Charity recognises the role charity plays in alleviating humanitarian crises and human ?suffering within and among nations. It also marks the work of organisations and individuals, including Mother Teresa.
