Beginning in 1925, World Animal Day is a global celebration that seeks to highlight the cause of animal welfare and to spread awareness and compassion for animals in every way. It is observed on the 4th of October every year, the feast day of the Francis of Assisi, known as the patron saint of animals in the Christian world.
In recent years, the Nepali government have done an excellent job in raising the profile of this event and encouraging participation across the country. In 2018 there were large crowds of people demonstrating through the streets of Nepal, both as organisations and as caring individuals.
As always, KAT Centre was delighted to participate!
