Tista' taqra bil- Malti.
The International Day of Charity will be marked on Saturday. The day which was declared by the United Nations General Assembly in 2012, was established with the objective of raising awareness, mobilizing people, NGOs and stakeholders all around the world to help others through volunteer and philanthropic activities.
The date of 5 September was chosen in order to commemorate the anniversary of the passing away of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 “for work undertaken in the struggle to overcome poverty and distress, which also constitute a threat to peace.”
For many, charity is equated to fund raising and donating money. However, charity does not only consist in donating money to a cause and can take different forms.
