In 1945, nations were in ruins. World War II was over, and the World wanted peace.

51 countries gathered and signed a document.

The document was a Charter, creating a new organisation, the United Nations.

70 years later, the United Nations is maintaining international peace and security.

It is promoting development and giving humanitarian assistance to those in need.

It is upholding international law, protecting human rights and promoting democracy.

And now its members are working together to fight climate change.

The UN is helping to build the better world its founders envisioned 70 years ago.

The U.N.’s first purpose is to keep peace throughout the world. The second goal is to develop friendly relations.

The third purpose is to assist nations in encouraging human rights, helping the poor, and improving hunger, disease and literacy.

The fourth goal is to operate as a center—a community—for achieving these goals. 

The name “United Nations” was coined by United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt. It was first used in the Declaration by United Nations of 1 January 1942, during Second World War.
