July 24th- International Self Care day

July 24th is International Self Care day. Provides a focus and opportunity to raise the profile of healthy lifestyle self-care. The International Self-Care Day, 24 July, symbolizes that the benefits of self-care are experienced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In other words, the benefits of self-care are life-long and do not just relate to a single day.

July 30th- World Day Against Trafficking Persons

July 30th is World Day Against Trafficking Persons. Many victims of human trafficking have experienced ignorance or misunderstanding in their attempts to get help. They have had traumatic post-rescue experiences during identification interviews and legal proceedings. Some have faced revictimization and punishment for crimes they were forced to commit by their traffickers. Others have been subjected to stigmatization or received inadequate support.
Learning from victims' experiences and turning their suggestions into concrete actions will lead to a more victim-centered and practical approach to combating human trafficking.
