WORLD DAY FOR FARMED ANIMALS
World Day for Farmed Animals was established in 1983 on October 2nd to coincide with the birthday of M.K. Gandhi, a man who famously lived his life through the principle of Ahimsa - kindness and harmlessness to all beings.
There is a growing awareness of farm animal welfare issues in Asia and a growing movement of people who are mobilising to make change.
Many organisations have come together in collaboration to begin celebrating WDFA specifically in Asia in 2020 with a range of organised activities including awareness-raising through social media and providing learning and networking sessions for Asia NGO's to bolster their farm animal strategies.
