United Nations Day 2013


On 24 October we celebrate United Nations Day to mark the anniversary of the entry into force of the UN Charter in 1945. Since then, the UN has made a difference in many of our lives. Promoting peace and Human Rights, fighting poverty and climate change, helping refugees and working for education are only few examples. Here are 60 ways the UN makes a difference.
