Observing United Nations Day in Kosovo

October 24 is United Nations Day. On that day in 1945, the UN officially came into being – not just as an institution, but as a solemn promise to the world’s people. According to the UN Secretary-General’s Special Representative in Kosovo, Farid Zarif, “the UN was created to save future generations from the scourge of war, to advance human rights, and to promote justice. We’ve faced many diverse setbacks – from genocide and terrorism to climate change and disease. It isn’t easy for one organization to tackle everything from human trafficking and corruption to floods and droughts. But we must keep trying – because that’s why we’re here.” For this year’s UN Day, Radio Ophelia took to the streets of Kosovo to discuss the UN with ordinary men and women, and interviewed the UN’s Development Coordinator in Kosovo, Andrew Russell, to find out what the UN is doing to help Kosovo meet its development goals.
