A 75th Anniversary. Monuments Will Turn Blue In Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, Quetta, Ziarat And Peshawar.
This Saturday night, a 75th anniversary. Monuments will go blue in Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, Quetta, Ziarat and Peshawar. This initiative is led by the Federal Ministry of Human Rights, UNICEF and partners, to mark Pakistan’s collective commitment to child rights.
Pakistan has set a world record in the number of buildings turning blue on 20 November since 2019. Since 2018, buildings, monuments and landmarks across the world have turned blue to mark World Children’s Day as part of a global initiative led by UNICEF. The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has been working tirelessly for child rights all over the world since 1946. UNICEF opened its first office in Karachi in 1948, in the year following Pakistan’s independence.
