Kofi Annan: The United Nations mourns former Secretary-General

  • 0

The United Nations is mourning the death of former Secretary-General Kofi Annan, who passed away peacefully after a short illness, on Saturday 18 August 2018. The renowned Ghanaian diplomat was 80 years old. ----- Mr. Annan was the seventh man to take the helm of the global organization and the first Secretary-General to emerge from the ranks of its staff. The current UN chief, Antonio Guterres hailed him as “a guiding force for good” and a “proud son of Africa who became a global champion for peace and all humanity.” “Like so many, I was proud to call Kofi Annan a good friend and mentor. I was deeply honoured by his trust in selecting me to serve as UN High Commissioner for Refugees under his leadership. He remained someone I could always turn to for counsel and wisdom — and I know I was not alone,” Mr. Guterres said in a statement. “He provided people everywhere with a space for dialogue, a place for problem-solving and a path to a better world. In these turbulent and trying times, he never stopped working to give life to the values of the United Nations Charter. His legacy will remain a true inspiration for all us.” Kofi Annan was born in Kumasi, Ghana, on 8 April 1938. He served as UN Secretary-General for two consecutive five-year terms, beginning in January 1997. Mr. Annan joined the UN system in 1962 as an administrative and budget officer with the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva, rising to hold senior-level posts in areas such as budget and finance, and peacekeeping. As Mr. Guterres noted: “In many ways, Kofi Annan was the United Nations. He rose through the ranks to lead the organization into the new millennium with matchless dignity and determination.”

World Humanitarian Day 2018 #NotATarget

  • 0

A message to the world’s leaders Conflict around the world is unleashing relentless horror and suffering for millions of civilian women, girls, men and boys. Civilians in conflict zones are also subject to horrific violations of human rights, including rape and other sexual violence. Conflicts continue to force millions of people to flee their homes for an uncertain future. Millions are uprooted by war, violence and persecution. Countless others go missing. But respect for international humanitarian and human rights law can reduce conflict. Governments, civil society and others are stepping up to advocate for change. Do not allow political differences to prevent or undermine action to protect civilians. This is vital not only to save lives and safeguard our common humanity. Protecting civilians in conflict is also the only way to lay the foundations for sustained peace. This Living Petition, represents the world uniting to demand the protection of civilians caught up in conflict around the world through the #NotATarget movement. We urge you to do everything in your power. Signed, Citizens of the World #UnitedNations #NotATarget

"Dear Dad" - Heartfelt Remembrance from Son of Baghdad Bombing Victim

  • 0

In a special ceremony to commemorate the World Humanitarian Day, the United Nations Office in Geneva gathered today survivors and family members of victims who lost their lives in the service of peace in Baghdad, Algiers and elsewhere. This year’s commemoration marks 15 years since the terrorist attack on the United Nations headquarters in Baghdad, Iraq in which 22 UN staff died and hundreds were injured. This horrible act was the start of increasingly violent attacks against the UN and other organizations, taking the lives of hundreds of humanitarian workers and other colleagues. Mattia-Sélim Kanaan, who was a three weeks old baby when his father Jean-Sélim Kanaan died in the bombing of the UN in Baghdad, addressed for the first time the audience. He said that “in these years, I never liked news about terrorist attacks. It made me feel outraged and sad for other families. Terrorists are not brave and have no heart. There is no courage in killing people that are unarmed. Despite the pain that sometimes I feel, what I learned since childhood is that life is stronger than anything, including bombs and fanatic ideologies”. World Humanitarian Day, designated by the UN General Assembly to be observed on 19 August, remembers aid workers who paid the utmost sacrifice in the line of duty and pays tribute to those who deliver aid to vulnerable communities in some of the world’s most dangerous crises.
