It was a day of joy, dancing and hope. On a sunny afternoon in Delhi, more than 800 people gathered at Pacific Mall in Tagore Garden on Sunday to dance together and spread the message of kindness towards animals.
International animal welfare charity, World Animal Protection along with Those In Need and Kind Beings organised Dance for Kindness 2019 to promote animal welfare and end animal cruelty.
The event was held on the occasion of World Kindness Day.

To see so many youngsters gather together for the cause of ending animal suffering is so inspiring. World Animal Protection wants to end animal suffering and ensure a better quality of life for animals. We urge people to be mindful of animal cruelty and take the pledge never to contribute in any cruel practices," said Gajender K Sharma, Country Director, World Animal Protection India.
The event comprised of several performances, a flash mob, a freeze mob and a human chain to showcase the unity of the participants towards the cause.
