International Day of the Disappeared (August 30)

Thursday, August 30, 2012

The International Day of the Disappeared is a day created to commemorate the fate of the individuals imprisoned and under poor conditions unknown to their family and relatives.

A member of a family who disappeared without any reason endured painfully.  Searching for their missing ones often finds ways, with or without help from the government, to overcome these challenges they bring all the people together to honor and give respect of the memories of lost individuals.  As they continue to be unaware of the whereabouts of their loved ones.
