INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR THE ERADICATION OF POVERTY

International Day for the Eradication of Poverty – 17th October

The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is an international observance celebrated each year on October 17 throughout the world. The first commemoration of the event took place in Paris, France in 1987 when 100,000 people gathered on the Human Rights and Liberties Plaza at the Trocadéro to honor victims of poverty, hunger, violence, and fear at the unveiling of a commemorative stone by Joseph Wresinski, founder of the International Movement ATD Fourth World. In 1992, four years after Wresinski’s death, the United Nations officially designated October 17 as the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.

WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY

World Mental Health Day – 10th October

World Mental Health Day is observed on 10th of October every year. The goal of this day is to raise awareness on mental health issues around the world. Each of us has the social responsibility to make a contribution ensuring that people dealing with these issues can have a better living with more social acceptance. They need more of our support to successfully deal with all issues concerning mental health.

To provide more support we need to discover more ways to reach people dealing with this stressful condition. This day provides an opportunity to all working on mental health issues to talk about their work and share with one another ideas on what more needs to be done to effectively make mental health care a reality for people globally.

🌹WORLD ROSE DAY🌹

World Rose Day – 22nd September

[Observed every year on this day in the memory of Melinda Rose (who suffered with cancer but fought it in great spirit till her last breathe) to spread awareness how to fight cancer cheerfully keeping hope alive]

Rose day is observed to let all cancer patients aware that they can face the disease with strong willpower and spirit. Alertness about cancer is important not only for supporting the patients, but also to prevent it. Awareness programs on this day also make normal people feel the importance of being cautious about cancer.
