International Human Solidarity Day raises important issues that are relevant at all times. Solidarity – common interests, unanimity, sympathy, mutual assistance. The word has many definitions! The main thing is to achieve the goal of the future together.
The holiday was officially established by the UN General Assembly in 2005. Every year, the organization provides a new theme, to which various states are connected. The document that became the basis of International Human Solidarity Day is a resolution on the eradication of poverty.
Solidarity is a significant component of human values, and in the 21st century, all the peoples of the world should follow it. The UN has always considered its goal to help people who are oppressed and injustice. There is a World Solidarity Fund aimed at the social development of the poor.
During the existence of the date, a lot of work has been done, but large-scale achievements are ahead, which can only be achieved by uniting. This applies to internal and external conflicts, environmental negative factors that threaten the extinction of life, relationships.
