International Human Solidarity Day

International Human Solidarity Day is observed each year on 20th December to celebrate unity in diversity throughout the world. This day also reiterates the importance of solidarity in removing poverty. The day is observed since December 2002, when the UNGA constituted the World Solidarity Fund. The World Solidarity Fund was launched by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) that is involved in eradication of poverty across the world.
