Today the whole world is celebrating International Charity Day, know the history and importance
International Charity Day 2022: Today is celebrated as International Charity Day all over the world. Although most common people will not be aware of this, so let us know about the history and importance of Charity Day.
Where in India today i.e. 5th September is celebrated as Teacher's Day, in the whole world including India, today is celebrated as International Charity Day. This day is celebrated to remember the social worker Mother Teresa on her death anniversary, under which people are told the importance of 'charity'. Actually, Mother Teresa used to help the poor, sick, orphans and helpless people, and she was famous for doing humanitarian work. He was also awarded the Nobel Prize for these humanitarian works.
By the way, the tradition of charity and virtue is going on in India for a long time. It is also believed in our country that there is no religion greater than charity, but a special day was not made to celebrate it. In 2012, the United Nations General Assembly declared Mother Teresa's death anniversary to be celebrated worldwide as International Charity Day, which was supported by all countries.
Mother Teresa was a Roman Catholic nun who took Indian citizenship on her own in 1948. After this, in the year 1950, he founded the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata, through which he helped the poor, sick, orphans, helpless and dying people for years. In 1979, Mother Teresa was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and the next year in 1980, India was awarded the highest civilian honour 'Bharat Ratna'.
In fact, International Charity Day is a platform to raise awareness of charity and charity events around the world. This day tells that people can help needy people by taking some time out of their hectic life so that the life of those people also improves.
Mother Teresa had taken a pledge to serve for life, for which she left home as well as the country at the age of 18. He devoted his entire life to serving others and died of a heart attack in the year 1997. Mother Teresa always said that "a life that is not lived for others is not life."
