United Nations Day was founded on October 24, 1945 and every year we celebrate the anniversary of this outstanding organization on 24th October. It has begun as an international peace keeping organization. But its role has since then grown to include protecting human rights, promoting social and economic development and providing aid around the world for the needy, in cases of natural calamities, famines and at times of armed conflicts.
Celebrating UN Day gives us an opportunity to know more about this great organization and the profound differences it makes in peoples’ life all over the world.
