Belated support for a beleagured institution

It's very trendy to bash the United Nations, pointing out that it, like all human institutions, is prone to graft and other sins. However, it's worth remembering that there is much that the organization does well that nobody else is well placed to do. Suzanne at Democracy Arsenal offers a Top 10 List of Things the UN Does Well. It's a powerful list, ranging from peacekeeping efforts to immunizations, as well as being an outlet for issues and circumstances that would otherwise be invisible to the outside world. Worth checking it out -- short and sweet, with links and more.
