International Day of Families


#COVID19 pandemic brings into sharp focus the importance of families who bear the brunt of the crisis, sheltering their members from harm, caring for out-of-school children and continuing their work responsibilities. 
Under economic unrest poverty always deepens. In times of uncertainty stress increases, often resulting in injustice against women and children. 

#InternationalDayofFamilies highlights why there needs to be more support for vulnerable families, who have lost their income, have inadequate housing, and those with young children, older persons and persons with disabilities. Families have it hard making ends meet when it comes to choosing to maintain their basic quality of life or to choose to deal with healthcare.
