Councilor Anaya said that today was an important day in the world, the anniversary of the body that brings together 193 nations committed to international peace, the fight against hunger, disease and illiteracy, and promotes the welfare of women and children around the world.
“Today the UN fights tirelessly to promote the respect and freedoms of everyone, the common goal of everyone is peace. At this time there are 193 countries working with the UN to tackle climate change and create sustainable development, provide food to 90 million people in 80 countries, vaccinating 58 percent of the world’s children, and saving 3 million lives every year,” she said.
