United Nations urges world community to foster a life of dignity for all on Human Solidarity Day
The United Nations (UN) established Human Solidarity Day, is going to be celebrated by its agencies, human rights activists and civil society organisations in many countries on December 20.

The observance is meant to remind the world community for a renewed commitment to collective action for achieving shared prosperity and peace, as well as to protect the planet and foster a life of dignity for all.

The UN as usual has called upon the world community for a joint action to craft and take forward a new, inclusive development agenda that eradicates poverty and preserve human dignity.

According to the UN, the member States, the UN system, experts, representatives of civil society, business executives and millions of individuals from all corners of the globe, came together with a shared sense of purpose to make the most of this once-in-a-generation opportunity 'to lift people from poverty, hunger and disease'.

Indeed, the United Nations believes that solidarity with people affected by poverty in absence of human rights being extended to them.  It is the observance that reaffirms UN's 'faith in the dignity and worth of the human person' in order 'to take 'the world forward to a sustainable future'.
