The High Representative for
the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC)
On the occasion of Eid-el-Fitr
New York – 23 May 2020
I wish to send my warmest wishes to Muslims around the world celebrating Eid-el-Fitr on Sunday, 24 May. This is a unique Eid in the absence of family gatherings that have always characterized this occasion that marks the end of 30 days of fasting the holy month of Ramadan. Despite the physical distancing, we have seen many people showing compassion and kindness towards each other. Religious leaders, faith actors, politicians and others came together spiritually on 14 May to pray for humanity and call for solidarity, unity and hope.
On behalf of United Nations Alliance of Civilizations team, I wish you a blessed and joyful feast.
