Today commemorates the United Nations' (UN) 'Human Solidarity Day' which is aimed at garnering cooperation in solving international problems of economic, social, cultural, or humanitarian importance.

According to the UN, Solidarity is identified in the Millennium Declaration as one of the fundamental values of international relations in the 21st Century, where those who either suffer or benefit least deserve help from those who benefit most. 

The UN General Assembly is convinced that the promotion of the culture of solidarity and the spirit of sharing is important for combating poverty. This is the reason the body has proclaimed every 20th of December as International Human Solidarity Day.

Through initiatives such as the establishment of the World Solidarity Fund to eradicate poverty and the proclamation of International Human Solidarity Day, the concept of solidarity was promoted as crucial in the fight against poverty and in the involvement of all relevant stakeholders. 

This year's theme is centered around promoting cultural equality and social justice that is directed towards human and social development, especially in developing countries.
