‘International Day of Charity’ observed


HYDERABAD: Like other parts of the World, ‘International Day of Charity’ was observed in Hyderabad on Tuesday.

In December 2012, the UN decided to declare September 5 as the International Day of Charity, and it was celebrated for the first time as such in 2013. The day helps to raise awareness of what charities do to minimise poverty worldwide.

In connection with the day in Hyderabad, numerous charity events, and public awareness and educational activities were organised by volunteering, philanthropic and charity organisations.

According to a research, each country, especially developing countries, are suffering from poverty with respect to the economic, social and cultural situation. Due to this, the UN has called upon the countries to contribute toward the efforts of charity organisations and individuals to cope with the problems of poverty.
