Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go -Mother Teresa
Charity, a noble superiority in man, brings welfare to the society. It enlarges human’s heart and spreads the message of brotherhood by delivering the genuine action of love to the societies.
The word 'charity' means generosity in giving something to the needy out of loving kindness towards them. There is a proverb: 'Charity begins at home,' which simply means a person who is kind at heart and possesses compassion towards others, is generally found to give his or her helping hands to the disadvantaged in the societies.
Charity has always played a vital role in the development of society by enabling those underprivileged people to live with basic necessities of life such as shelter, food and clothing. The major way to lessen the gap amongst the different classes in the society is by sharing and distributing what are more owned by those privileged to the less privileged ones.
Many organisations have been working in this regard for a very long period of time across the globe as it has been admitted as the social responsibility of every nation to not only help the locally deprived citizens but also take encourage steps to get hold of the poor ones.
The United Nations (UN) recognized 5th of September as an International Day of Charity. It was established with the objective of sensitizing and mobilizing people, NGOs and stakeholders all around the world to help others through volunteer and benevolent activities. This day was also chosen in honor of Mother Teresa who has dedicated her life to assisting the poor and disadvantaged people around the world. Her work was commemorated through the Nobel Prize in 1979 and until today, it continues to be carried forward with the aim of benefiting the world’s poor.
