January 31st is Street Children’s Day, to commemorate and help the street children of Manila, Philippines. The number of street children in this region is increasing A number of factors is causing the swell of street children in the Philippines. Leading among them is poverty. It was found that a substantial number of families in the lower segments of the society are having a full meal only once a day. The 'Street Children's Day' is commemorated every year on the January 31st and should highlight the situation of these children and young people and raise funds for projects run by the Salesians of Don Bosco and the Salesian Sisters of Don Bosco in favor of street children worldwide. A “Street Children ‘s Day” information package is sent to parishes, interested teachers and youth groups at the beginning of January. The package included material for a service for children, general background information on the subject of street children and suggestions for campaignsPast and present governments try to arrest the growing population but the Roman Catholic Church opposes the scientific methods of family planning and say that the government should instead address corruption.
Street children though are seen only in first class cities particularly in Manila, Davao, Cebu and Cagayan de Oro. There are very few in other cities. Their number peaks especially during the holidays because the poor people in the provinces and in the upland communities go down to take advantage of the 'gift-giving' season up to January. After that, street children are rounded up by local authorities. Those who bolt out of day-care centers go back to the streets until picked up again. It's a rancorous cycle.
We Care for Humanity acknowledges this day as a day of reflection and duty to those children who are impoverished and lack the necessities for daily living and quality of life. It is the organization’s duty to help in anyway so that there are few less street children in the world

CJanuary 10th 1998, world laughter day was created to promote peace and love all across the world. Created by Dr. Madan Kataria, founder of the worldwide Laughter Yoga movement. The festivity of World Laughter Day is a positive demonstration for world peace and is envisioned to build up a global awareness of brotherhood and friendship through laughter. Its popularity has grown substantially with that of the Laughter Yoga movement now counting thousands of Laughter Clubs in more than 100 countries.
There are many benefits to having a chuckle: Everyone knows that laughter makes one feel good and puts a person in high spirits, but did you also know that laughter actually causes physiological responses that protect the body from disease and help vital organs repair themselves? A good laugh can be compared to a mild workout, as it exercises the muscles, gets the blood flowing, decreases blood pressure and stress hormones, improves sleep patterns and boosts the immune system. showed that humor and laughter can also improve memory and mental performance.
On behalf of We Care for Humanity Organization, enjoy this day full of funny jokes, comedy, whimsical puns and hysterical shows. Most importantly, take the humanitarian route and share the laughter with someone who needs a smile, a humorous jest and a hug. Go out and make someone’s day with a smile and a joke!
