Celebrating United Nations Day

History Add comments

I watched Singing Bee last Saturday(or Sunday) and the contestants were half Filipinos and half foreigner.. Then I realized that last October 24, the world celebrated United Nations day. I remember when I was young I used to join United Nations Day contest in school. Wherein, participants have to wear national costumes of a certain country.

United Nations Organizations officially came into existence on October 24, 1945 upon ratification of the Charter by the five permanent members of the Security Council — France, the Republic of China, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom and the United States — and by a majority of the other 46 signatories. The first meetings of the General Assembly, with 51 nations represented, and the Security Council, took place in London in January 1946 (source Wikipedia).

Kofi Annan of Ghana for me is the most popular secretary general of United Nations. Currently, the organizations is being headed by Ban Ki-moon of South Korea.

United Nations’ headquarters is seated in Manhattan, New York City, USA. Currently, it has 192 member states.

There’s a lot to say about United Nations Organization but then what is important is that the countries of the world has an organization to keep peace and order in the world. Aside from that the organization aids different countries for food and health support.  :)

Ciao! :)
