 Racism: A Global Imperative for Justice”

"Today, we honour the memory of the millions of people of African descent who suffered under the brutal system of slavery and the transatlantic slave trade.

This trade created and sustained a global system of exploitation that existed for more than 400 years, devastating families, communities and economies.

We remember with humility the resilience of those who endured the atrocities committed by slave traders and owners, condoned by slavery’s beneficiaries . . ."

UN Secretary-General António Guterres   

Expressed Deepest Condolences

February 22, 2021

The Italian Ambassador to the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), a World Food Programme (WFP) staff member, together with an Italian embassy official, were killed on Monday during an attack on a UN convoy in the east of the country, the agency has said.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres, expressed his deepest condolences to the families of the deceased, as well as to the Governments of Italy and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, in a statement issued later on Monday. 

"He further expresses his full solidarity with the WFP colleagues and

the entire United Nations team in the country. Mr. Guterres called

on the Government of the DRC "to investigate swiftly this

heinous targeting of a United Nations joint field mission

and to bring the perpetrators to justice."  He made it

clear that the UN would continue to support the

Government and people, "in their efforts to bring

about peace and stability in the east of the country."

UN General Assembly - 75th Anniversary

January 10, 1946 - January 10, 2021

VOLKAN BOZKIR UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY 75TH A

"Excellencies,  I am delighted to address this commemoration of the General Assembly’s first meeting that took place in this very Hall 75 years ago today.


Since that initial meeting, the General Assembly has met in 75 sessions to discuss and act on the topics that matter most to our people.  The General Assembly has evolved. It has grown from 51 members to 193 today.  But it still remains a shining example of multilateralism where every country, no matter how big or small, gets one equal vote.  And it remains a sanctuary where nations can peacefully address their differences and find solutions to global challenges.


As we recover from COVID-19 and move together towards a greener, more equitable world, we will continue to be guided and inspired by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Sustainable Development Goals.


Over the past 75 years, we have achieved more together than we could have apart. As we move into the next 75 years and our world becomes ever more connected, let us tighten those bonds, so we can best protect and deliver for the peoples we serve.  Thank you."

EPACHA Foundation Wishes . . .

A Happy New Year!

The year 2020 deeply impacted its mark of

unprecedented events the world did not

expect - and was not prepared for.

With the widespread devastation of the 

Corona Virus [COVID-19] Global Pandemic,

Nations great and small shall never be the

same.  Nor shall everyday communities of

families friends around the world revert to a

way of life so familiar but now so estranged.

The lessons learned from so great an impact

as the COVID-19 pandemic can be viewed

as a monumental wake-up call that

demands answers in terms of

preparedness for the unexpected

and unanticipated.  Scaling from local

communities to top-level national leadership, a 

certain fact cannot  be denied:  There certainly is  

MUCH WORK TO BE DONE!

Global responsibilities are heightened

with  stark  realities that compel  well-planned,

coordinated efforts for successful results.

As COVID-19 has made global history,

so must historic impacts for the whole of

Humanity's overall well-being toward
