New Delhi: International Human Solidarity Day is celebrated every year on December 20. The Day aims to celebrate our unity in diversity and promote debate on ways to act together for building a sustainable future for all. The Day also aims to remind governments to fulfil their international commitments.
The UN had in 2005 recognised solidarity as a fundamental and universal value and declared that International Human Solidarity Day will be observed every year on December 20 to encourage governments and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to eradicate poverty by “spreading awareness”.
As per the United Nations, International Human Solidarity Day is a day to celebrate unity in diversity and remind countries to respect their commitments to international agreements. The aim of the day is also to encourage new initiatives for poverty eradication and raise public awareness of the importance of solidarity.
International Human Solidarity Day’s significance is to create awareness in people about the culture of solidarity and why it is important. People can do their part by donating to a relief organisation to help people out of poverty, and find their own way to help the poor in your community. The aim is also to find people who are like-minded which would lead to helping more people in need. International Human Solidarity Day celebrates the existence of the World Solidarity fund. On this day the UN raises many initiatives that help in eradicating poverty and proclaim International Human Solidarity Day. The day also focuses attention on the concept of solidarity that is crucial in the fight against poverty. Happy International Human Solidarity Day 2020.
