Monday October 17, 2016 is International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.

“Poverty has many faces, whether it be starving children in Africa or India or whether it be a struggling single Mother crying in the supermarket as her children look on confused.

There is no denying that poverty is a social struggle and affects communities far and wide with impacts on single people and whole cities. With rising awareness in recent decades there are now more steps than ever being taken towards the eradication of poverty and the assistance and inclusion of those struggling with poverty towards being a part of the solution. The complexity of poverty is now better understood due to increased cultural awareness and sympathy with true connection and motion towards a solution. The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is observed to promote and acknowledge the effort and struggle of those living in poverty. The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty also gives people living in poverty a specific opportunity to make their concerns and thoughts heard, recognizing that they are the first to fight against poverty.

This day is specifically set aside for activities which relate to the eradication of poverty. Thus it would seem the best way to observe the day would be to find an organized event in your city or town that is providing a focus on observing the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. If there is no official event organized in your area then consider volunteering at a homeless shelter or other such place which is likely aware of the significance of this day and is likely engaged in special celebration of the day.

Most importantly, the day is an opportunity to recognize the struggles of those living in poverty and to encourage their efforts and the efforts of anyone working to eradicate poverty.” ^sPm – #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’ http://ow.ly/i/o2uT7
