World Humanitarian Day

August 19, 2015

World Humanitarian Day Global Awareness Day

World Humanitarian Day was created to mark the anniversary of the Baghdad bombing of 22 UN aid workers. The global awareness day and to commemorate all people who have lost their lives in humanitarian service and to celebrate the spirit that inspires humanitarian work. The World Humanitarian Day website states:

This year we are shining the spotlight on humanitarians around the world and profiling Humanitarian Heroes – people from all walks of life, who are committed to making a difference. World Humanitarian Day is an opportunity to celebrate the spirit that inspires humanitarian work around the world. Thousands of people across the globe are doing incredible work every day. But unfortunately some of them pay the ultimate price. This World Humanitarian Day, we honour those humanitarians who face danger to help people in need. We remember their sacrifice. By tweeting #humanitarianheroes you stand in support for those who risk their lives every day. Visit our world map to see the support taking place around the world leading up to and on this important day.
