In 1945, after the turmoil and destruction of World War II, the United Nations were established in order to prevent future devastating wars. 50 governments gathered in San Francisco on April 25 and began drafting the UN Charter, which was adopted June 25 and then officially took effect on the 24 of October.
Today the United Nations consists of 193 member states and 2 observer states. The mission of the United Nation is to maintain international peace and security.
So let us be united and see where you live, show us a piece of your world at this time of year!
