Defenders of Health Day

Defenders of Health Day is a celebration of all the people who work tirelessly to improve our health around the world.

Defenders of Health protect us on a daily basis. This day is all about teaching kids about how these Defenders are creating a healthy world.

On this day young recruits are invited to dress up as a Defender and create life-saving objects using items you have at home. Through role play exercises at school and at home activities, there are lots of ways that your kids can take part. Do you accept your mission?
