Date of Issue : 16 June 2015
Here are new stamps to be released by San Marino on two unusual themes. Both the sets will be released on 16th June 2015.
San Marino Post is to release an original stamp set to celebrate one of the most pleasant holiday – World Kiss Day. The issue consists of four items that are to be put into circulation on the 16th of June.
The event has been celebrated in the United Kingdom on the 6th July since 1990 and it spread soon worldwide. Its aim is to pay homage to a gesture that contains in its intrinsic value the sense of love in its wider and universally recognized forms.
The set dedicated to the World Kiss Day recalls immediately the feeling of brotherly sharing and symbolic human union: the kissing lips have the shape of a red heart full of passion and happiness.
World Toilet Day – 19th November
Date of Issue – 16 June 2015
San Marino Post dedicates issued a set of stamps to the World Toilet Day. The set depicts colorful and vivid figures using toilet. The design suggests a serious reflection upon this dramatic topic in order to make the access to sanitation for all a priority of global development. The issue is to be put into circulation on the 16th of June.
In 2013 the UN General Assembly declared November the 19th “World Toilet Day”. This event provokes the conscience of the developed western countries. In fact the access to sanitation, which we take for granted, is still a dream for a third of mankind. 2.5 billion people don’t have access to proper sanitation, including toilets and latrines, with dramatic consequences on human heath, dignity and security. Every day 2,000 children under 5 years old die because of diarrhoea due to poor sanitation. The most affected areas are India and Sub-Saharan Africa.
The open defecation for girls and women in some countries brings the risk of being kidnapped or raped in the search of an isolated place. Moreover, many girls skip the school when they begin menstruating because the schools don’t have improved sanitation. Therefore the United Nations launched a wide campaign with the aim of awakening public opinion towards the lack of proper sanitation in many countries of the world.
