The International Day of Family Remittances (IDFR) is celebrated every year on the 16th June. Its primary aim is to recognise the significant financial contribution that migrant workers make to the wellbeing of their families back home and to the sustainable development of their countries of origin. The second aim is to encourage the public and private sectors and civil society, to help and collaborate in order to maximise the impact of these funds in the developing world.
