Friendship Day 2020: The Power of Care and Participation

Happy International Friendship Day 2020: International Days give us an opportunity to bring people around the world and mobilize resources to tackle global problems. Friendship Day reminds us that our world is without lonely friends. Neighborhood friendliness goes a long way in building strong and safe societies.

It is sad when we see children and the elderly displaced in conflict-torn countries. Wars and conflicts uproot people. They have to leave everything including friends behind.

"Let's be there for each other and lift each other for a better world," said the United Nations Women, a global body empowering women around the world, in a tweet on International Friendship Day.

Another inspiring tweet talks about "the power of kindness, respect and support."
