International Day of Charity: Nourishing Human Spirit

International Day of Charity, as it is known and celebrated annually on 5 September, was originally a Hungarian civil society initiative to honor and commemorate the death of the renowned nun and missionary, Mother Teresa (1910-1997) (originally born as Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu), a Nobel Peace Prize winner (1979). In this piece, we brief Youth Time readers on the background of this day. We also see through ways you can celebrate this day by contributing and this does not necessarily mean that you will have to spend money.
