Celebrate World Children's Day and World Elders Day in Sri Lanka

Celebrate World Children's Day and World Elders Day in Sri Lanka

The International Day of Older Persons is observed on October 1 each year.  On December 14, 1990 the United Nations General Assembly voted to establish October 1 as the International Day of Older Persons from October 1, 1991.

The holiday is celebrated by raising awareness about issues affecting the elderly, such as senescence and elder abuse. It is also a day to appreciate the contributions that older people make to society.

In Sri Lanka, Children's Day is also celebrated on October 1. Children's Day is an event celebrated on various days in many places around the world. International Children's Day is celebrated on June 1 and Universal Children's Day is on November 20. The International Children's Day had its origin in Turkey in 1920 and later in the World Conference for the Well-being of Children in Geneva, Switzerland in 1925.

Issuing a special message in view of this special day President Mahinda Rajapaksa has said that the children in a country hold the key to the future of a country and that it is only by taking care of them and guiding them on to the correct path that discipline can be instilled in a country.

Meanwhile the President has also pointed out in his message that it was the responsibility of every single person in the country to safeguard children in the country while taking care of the elders in our society.
