2-Day Celebration of the World Day in Madagascar
Wed 17/10/2018

The October 17 World Day was celebrated this year at the Parvis Analakely in Antananarivo, the capital city of Madagascar. Events spanned two days, thanks to a partnership with: the Mayor’s office; the Prime Minister; and the Minister of Population, the Advancement of Women, and Social Security; the Telma Foundation; and the French Embassy.

Some families were unable to attend because their houses were demolished to make way for the construction of a roadway, which began on this same day. These families received no compensation from the government in order to secure an alternative property because, according to a representative from the local authorities, they had built illegally on properties that did not belong to them. And yet these families had been paying taxes during the time they lived in their former properties.
