Every year on the 21st September, the world commemorates the International Day of Peace. This is an important day for humanity. The theme for this year’s International Day of Peace is, “Recovering better for an Equitable and Sustainable World.”
We are in the midst of the ravaging COVID-19 pandemic that has also affected all aspects of our lives. Children are the most affected, with millions of hours lost in schooling. The rate of school dropouts due to lack of sustenance is alarming. Families have lost their sources of livelihoods as economies are ravaged by the pandemic. We must show solidarity.
