2024: The "Journey for Peace"

Enters its

Year!

76th 1ab.jpg

The "Work for Peace" Continues

75+ Years of

UN PEACEKEEPING:

Peace Begins With Me!

 

1948 - 2023

United Nations Peacekeeping began in 1948

when the Security Council authorized the deployment

of military observers to the Middle East. The role of

the UN Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO)

was to monitor the Armistice Agreement

between Israel and its Arab neighbours. Since then,

more than 2 million uniformed and civilian personnel

have served in 71 peacekeeping operations around

the world, contributing to the cause of international

security, peace and progress for all peoples.

More than two million men and women have

Tragically, more than 3,500 UN Peacekeepers

have lost their lives in the cause of peace.

For 75 years, they have supported people and communities rocked

Secretary-General's Message for United Nations Day

24 October 2023

ANTONIO GUTERRES 69ab.jpg

"The United Nations is a reflection of the world as it is – and an aspiration of the world we know it can be.  

It is our responsibility to help build that world of peace, sustainable development and human rights for all. 

I know we can do it. The Charter of the United Nations – which entered into force 78 years ago today – points the way.

Above all, it is rooted in a spirit of determination to heal divisions, repair relations, and build peace. 

To expand opportunities, and leave no one behind.  

To ensure justice, equality and empowerment for women and girls. 

To provide life-saving relief to those in need. 

And to be flexible enough to address challenges that did not even exist when the UN was born – from the existential climate crisis to the perils and promise of artificial intelligence.  

The United Nations is guided by timeless values and principles, but it must never be frozen in time. That is why we must always keep strengthening ways of working and applying a 21st century lens to all we do.

On this United Nations Day, let us commit with hope and determination to build the better world of our aspirations.

 

Let us commit to a future that lives up to the name of our indispensable organization.  

We are a divided world. We can and must be united nations."

to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind, and to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and  small, and  to  establish  conditions  under  which

AND FOR THESE ENDS

to practice tolerance and live together in peace with one another as good neighbors, and to unite our strength to maintain international peace and security, and to ensure by the  acceptance  of  principles and  the  institution of methods, that armed force shall not be used, save in the common  interest,  and  to  employ  international machinery for the promotion of the economic and social advancement of all peoples,

Does Humanity Need the

United Nations?

YES!

The United Nations is one of Humanity's key components making a distinct and significant difference in the process of achieving a secure, peaceful and healthy environment wherein distressed populations can be  safely provisioned for with humanitarian assistance and development toward a viable life of sustainability with human rights, freedom and dignity.

Since its inception in 1945, the  United Nations has been an indispensable peacekeeping force throughout troubled areas of conflict around the world.  And in the 21st Century wherein a new era of increasing global hostilities are on the rise, the United Nations yet holds fast to its peacekeeping responsibilities and principles for the preservation of populations beset by conditions of extreme poverty, famine, lack of healthcare, sanitation and housing: human hardships increasingly compounded with new forms of adversities which harm rather than help human development.

In our 21st Century world of unprecedented challenges which threaten the very existence of Humanity as a whole, the United Nations Blue Helmet presence  continues in its peacekeeping missions with untiring determination to keep the peace.

As set forth in the Preamble to the United Nations Charter, the United Nations continues to achieve its worthy goal for a better world:

" . . . WE THE PEOPLES OF THE UNITED NATIONS DETERMINED to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind, and to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small, and to establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained, and to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom, . . . "
