International Day of Friendship

30 Jul 2018 12:00 AM - 30 Jul 2018 11:30 PM


When greed supersedes concerns about the health of our planet or its inhabitants, when fanatic attachment to ideology is pursued at all costs, and when people suffer human rights violations because they are considered somehow less than equal, the heritage of humanity is betrayed and our future wellbeing is placed in peril [...] On this International Day of Friendship, let us resolve to cherish and cultivate as many warm relationships as possible, enriching our own lives and enhancing the future." — UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon
