Secretary-General's message on the International Day of Family Remittances
The International Day of Family Remittances recognizes the contributions of hundreds of millions of migrant workers to their communities of origin.
Family remittances are not only a main source of income for households, but account for a substantial portion of the Gross Domestic Product in many low-and-middle income countries. Global remittances are three times greater than Official Development Assistance and help reduce poverty, improve health and education, and advance gender equality.
