International Day of Charity, September 5
At the initiative of Hungary, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution by consensus to designate 5 September, the anniversary of the passing away of Mother Teresa, as the International Day of Charity. The designation of the International Day of Charity will create a universal platform to enhance visibility, organize special events, create synergies and thereby further increase public support for charity.
