International Day of United Nations Peacekeepers, 29 May, offers a chance to pay tribute to the uniformed and civilian personnel’s invaluable contribution to the work of the UN and to honour more than 4,000 peacekeepers who have lost their lives serving under the UN flag since 1948.
Since it is not always easy to celebrate the event exactly on that date, ceremonies and events are often organised as near the date as possible.
