The United Nations turned 70 on the 24th of October, 2015. As international NGO, Fracarita International is actively involved in specific councils and conferences at UN-level, especially in the field of mental health care.
24 October has been celebrated as United Nations Day since 1948. UN Day marks the anniversary of the entry into force in 1945 of the UN Charter. With the ratification of this founding document by the majority of its signatories, including the five permanent members of the Security Council, the United Nations officially came into being.
