Start of Media Campaign for International Day of Families

Start of Media Campaign for International Day of Families 

 

The Family is the basic and natural unit of society, which plays a critical role of nurturing and caring for individual family members, from children to youth, men and women, people living with disability and the older generation.  
May 15th is celebrated as the International Day of Families. In commemorating International Day of Families, the Ministry of Social Development, Housing and Community Empowerment acknowledges the important role played by families in society and reminds us that family solidarity is critical throughout this period.  

 


The Ministry is therefore embarking on a Media Campaign from May 15 to May 31, 2020, led by the Parenting Unit of the Division of Gender and Family Affairs. The theme chosen for this campaign is ‘Families Connect’. It promotes ways in which family members can connect with each other, while following physical/social distancing and COVID-related guidelines.  

 


We invite all households in Grenada to use the first weekend of this campaign to engage with your children. It is a weekend to release the stresses of working from home, home-schooling and the uncertainties about the new ways of living. Adults and children in every household are asked to spend family time in fun, relaxing and caring activities.  

 


In an address to mark International Day of Families, Hon Delma Thomas reminded the nation that sometimes, family interactions “will be about work, school, household chores and discipline. But other times, and equally important, it must be about taking part in fun activities, growing together, learning from each other, valuing the personalities and talents of each other, supporting each other, and building healthy relationships.” 

 


Connected families will protect and support all members of the family in a holistic way during the pandemic and beyond.  

 


We hereby ask for the assistance of Media Managers, Media Personnel and the public in making the campaign a success. We call on all sectors of society to work with us in the quest to build strong families. Working together, we can do more to create a safe and caring society.
