December 20th is the day that the General Assembly proclaimed as the International Human Solidarity Day which promotes to focus on eradicating poverty, maintaining the hope of a better world, enhancing the protection of the dignity of people, the defense of the environment and the planet.
Days like today we celebrate our diversity, we take awareness of the importance of solidarity, we encourage the debate to achieve common goals, as well as the eradication of poverty. In the same way, we promote 3 actions to improve human solidarity. The first is assistance, facilitate basic services to all people. The second action is the help of development, we lay the foundations for communities to work for their own development. The third is cooperation; this is not only to empower vulnerable communities, but to generate an ethical bond between donor communities and beneficiaries.
May all our actions be humanitarian, let’s take our arms to help!
The Charities Aid Foundation, made a study that evaluates the solidarity behaviour of 153 countries, it focuses on 3 main values: the financial donations, the time had spent as volunteer and the time spent helping other people. Spain is number 83 of 153.
The top 10 countries most solidarities are:
- United States
- New Zealand
- United Kingdom
- Sri Lanka
Now, we can also help as a personal label, some actions you can do are:
- Give your time (volunteer)
- Donate (specific objects, food, medicines, clothes)
- Make a financial donation.
- Organize a solidarity activity (non-profit fund raising, charity events)
- Solidarity education (teach to the kids the importance of being supportive through movies or stories)
- Fight for the human rights of all the people.
Remember that our mision in Via Families is to contribute in young education and their future to eradicate the poverty and inequality for a better world.
The following video will make us think about the daily actions in which we can collaborate.
