Since 2013, the United Nations has designated the International Day of Charity, which falls on September 5. It is an expression of support and respect for organizations and individuals around the world who help those in need on a volunteer and philanthropic basis. Why September 5? In honor of a very important humanitarian worker. On this day, in 1997, Mother Teresa died, who received many awards for humanitarian aid during her life and was even declared blessed.
On September 5th, we commemorate the death of Mother Teresa, a significant humanitarian worker who received numerous awards for her charitable work and was even declared blessed. Charity takes many forms and always aims to help others, whether it is through monetary or material donations or through volunteer work. On the website of the project "Kam s ním" (Where to Take It), you can find a map with charity organizations and shops where you can donate usable items such as clothing, food, books, and household items. International Charity Day is meant to make people reflect on how they can help those in need. Any kind of help to others can have an invaluable impact.
