International Human Solidarity Day - 20 December

December 20 is observed as the International Human Solidarity Day (IHSD) by United Nations. The General Assembly, on 22 December 2005, by resolution 60/209 identified solidarity as one of the fundamental and universal values that should underlie relations between peoples in the Twenty-first century, and in that regard decided to proclaim 20 December of each year International Human Solidarity Day.

The objective of International Human Solidarity Day is to promote solidarity for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals including poverty eradication. Solidarity means unity (as of a group or class) that produces or is based on the community's interests, objectives, and standards.

The World Solidarity Fund was established by UN General Assembly on February 2003 as a trust fund of the United Nations Development Programme to eradicate poverty and promote human and social development in developing countries.
