United Nations Tweeted that the UN Peacekeepers from ‘FIJI’ serving under the UN flag work in difficult as well as dangerous environments, risking their lives and leaving their families behind to protect the most vulnerable people.
Since the past many decades, nearly from 1948, more than a million women and men have served as UN peacekeepers. Each day they tried to make a tangible difference in the millions of people’s lives.
In some places like the Central African Republic and South Sudan, our peacekeepers rescue civilians against violent attacks and support the delivery of essential humanitarian assistance.
Peacekeeping is a remarkable force for good, with military and police personnel from over 120 countries serving together alongside civilian associates.

It further stated that, “We ask peacekeepers and their families to make significant sacrifices. They help at great personal risk and in harsh conditions.”
In the past, they even make some ultimate sacrifices- over 3,500 peacekeepers have lost their lives in exchange for Peace.
