As we celebrate the beginning of September and ARTHRITIS AWARENESS MONTH, we also celebrate the amazing and generous donors who make arthritis research a priority. Arthritis Research Canada (ARC) is honoured to have your support and is working hard to advance arthritis research for the more than 4.6 million Canadians affected by this disease.
World Humanitarian Day (WHD) is held every year on 19 August to pay tribute to aid workers who risk their lives in humanitarian service, and to rally support for people affected by crises around the world.
2019 WHD campaign: #WomenHumanitarians
This World Humanitarian Day 2019 we honor the work of women in crises throughout the world.
Women make up a large number of those who risk their own lives to save others. They are often the first to respond and the last to leave. These women deserve to be celebrated. They are needed today as much as ever to strengthen the global humanitarian response.
12 August was first designated International Youth Day by the UN General Assembly in 1999, and serves as an annual celebration of the role of young women and men as essential partners in change, and an opportunity to raise awareness of challenges and problems facing the world’s youth.
2019 Theme: “Transforming education”
This year’s theme highlights efforts to make education more inclusive and accessible for all youth, including efforts by youth themselves.
International Youth Day 2019 will examine how Governments, young people and youth-led and youth-focused organizations, as well as other stakeholders, are transforming education so that it becomes a powerful tool to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
