World Humanitarian Day

World Humanitarian Day

19 August 2014

On World Humanitarian Day, we renew our commitment to life-saving relief efforts -- and we remember all those who died serving this noble cause.

Last year, more humanitarian workers were kidnapped, seriously injured or killed than ever before. This is an outrage.

In recent weeks, dozens of humanitarians -- including members of the UN family -- have lost their lives in South Sudan and Gaza. Too many people have died or suffered from deliberate attacks.

Humanitarian workers and their families are hit hardest by these crimes.

But they are also felt by millions of others.

Attacks on humanitarian workers hinder the ability of people in desperate need to receive lifesaving assistance.

Children go unvaccinated. Sick and wounded patients go untreated. Those forced from their homes are left without food, water or shelter – exposed to violence, disease or other threats.

On World Humanitarian Day, we honour the heroic aid workers who rush bravely to help people in need.

We remember their sacrifices, and we recognize the millions of people who count on humanitarian workers for their very survival.

Let us honour the fallen by protecting those who carry on their work – and supporting humanitarian relief operations worldwide.


-Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

International Youth Day


Aug 12, 2014

International Youth Day

The theme of International Youth Day 2014 is “Youth and Mental Health” under the slogan ‘Mental Health Matters’.



Youth with mental health conditions can often experience stigma and discrimination, which in turn can lead to exclusion and/or discourage people from seeking help for fear of being negatively ‘labelled’. Efforts are needed to overcome this stigma to ensure that young people with mental health conditions can lead full and healthy lives free of isolation and unnecessary shame, and that they openly seek the services and support they need. You can be part of these efforts!


UN DESA, through the Focal Point on Youth, and the Inter-Agency Network on Youth Development, promotes a multi-dimensional approach to addressing the challenges faced by young people with mental health issues, including tackling stigma and promoting social inclusion to enable all young people to achieve their aspirations and goals.

The UN in Haiti: Time for a Change?

The UN in Haiti: Time for a Change?

With remarks by
Sandra Honoré
Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary General for Haiti
Robert Perito
Executive Director, The Perito Group
Former Haiti Program Director, U.S. Institute of Peace

Moderated by
Michel Gabaudan
President
Refugees International
The United Nations peacekeeping mission in Haiti has been remade numerous times during its twenty-year history – most recently following the devastating Haitian earthquake of 2010. Now the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) may face another major reconfiguration, including a draw-down of military forces. Yet even as MINUSTAH's plans move forward, Haiti's future remains uncertain. Disputes and delays over this year's legislative elections risk paralyzing the Haitian parliament, and the nation's police are still in need of reform. At the same time, the humanitarian and development needs of Haitians – including those affected by the recent cholera epidemic – loom large. Join us as we discuss how a changing MINUSTAH can meet these challenges.

This event will be conducted under the Chatham House Rule.
DATE:
Monday, August 4, 2014
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
LOCATION:
United Nations Information Center
1775 K Street NW, Suite 400

Nelson Mandela Day


Jul 18, 2014

Nelson Mandela Day

Every year on 18 July — the day Nelson Mandela was born — the UN joins a call by the Nelson Mandela Foundation to devote 67 minutes of time to helping others, as a way to mark Nelson Mandela International Day.


For 67 years Nelson Mandela devoted his life to the service of humanity — as a human rights lawyer, a prisoner of conscience, an international peacemaker and the first democratically elected president of a free South Africa.
