15th May - International Day of Families
Date of Issue : 1 June 2016
Here is a beautiful stamp issued by Polish Post featuring a Happy Family. This stamp has been issued to commemorate International Day of Families.
The ideal of “a family” is one of the most basic models of what a better world can be like. In a perfect family, the members are joined by bonds of love; they help each other meet all of their physical and emotional needs. To underline the importance of the nearest and dearest in each person‘s life Poland Post has introduced to all philately enthusiasts a special stamp depicting happy and united family.
The International Day of Families is observed on the 15th of May every year. The Day was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in 1993 with resolution A/RES/47/237 and reflects the importance the international community attaches to families.
The International Day provides an opportunity to promote awareness of issues relating to families and to increase knowledge of the social, economic and demographic processes affecting families.
