New Delhi: This year’s 25th anniversary of International Day of Families comes at a time of one of the most challenging global health and social crises. The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic brings into sharp focus the importance of investing in social policies protecting the most vulnerable individuals and families.
“First of all I congratulate all the families in the World A very happy International Day of Families. May lord bring lots of love and closeness in the families and their ties. This Covid 19 has brought every one close to each other emotionally,” said Dr. Sandeep Marwah Global Cultural Minister and President of World Peace Development And Research Foundation while talking to the young students of Asian Academy of Film And Television on line.
“It is the families who bear the brunt of the crisis, sheltering their members from harm, caring for out-of-school children and, at the same time, continuing their work responsibilities,” added Dr. Marwah.
“No two families are alike. Your relatives may be loud and crazy, small and introspective, totally conventional, or completely unorthodox, but your family is yours. And, no matter what, your family makes up a huge part of who you are. Celebrate the ones who made you the person you are today. The only rock I know that stays steady, the only institution I know that works, is the family,” expressed Dr. Sandeep Marwah.
