On May 15 every year, the world takes pause and celebrates the joy of having a family. The International Day of Families is observed on May 15 every year, as proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 1993.

This year’s observance focuses on the role of family-oriented policies in promoting education and overall well-being of their members.
The UAE is spearheading its own ‘Cohesive Family 2021’ initiative, whereby people are invited to take an online pledge to promote family values.
