World Humanitarian Day,a day to tribute countless aid workers across the humanitarian sector who despite the risks they face, help millions of people recover from crises.
Ten years ago, 22 aid workers were killed in a bombing at the UN headquarters in Baghdad. On August 19, World Humanitarian Day, we honor their sacrifice and the sacrifice of aid workers everywhere.
The reality is that every day, many humanitarian aid workers face immense danger and difficulty providing help to those who need it most.On this day in 2009, the United Nations General Assembly formalized the first World Humanitarian day.
Love, humanity and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. A kind word, a helpful hand and a shoulder to rely on is all one needs in tough times.
Dedicating your entire life for the welfare of those in tough situations takes courage and true altruism, that is why humanitarians are called true heroes! They risk their lives for the betterment of suffering men, women and children across the globe. These workers are an inspiration and hope to thousands of people who suffer due to man-made conflicts. Join us to honour these heroes and learn from these leaders on World Humanitarian Day!
To say that on a daily basis you can make a difference, well, you can. One act of kindness a day can do it.”
Humanity is an ocean, if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty. World Humanitarian Day on the 19th of August came as the result of great efforts by the Sérgio Vieira de Mello Foundation and his family, who worked closely with the Ambassadors of France, Switzerland, Japan and Brazil to steer the draft Resolution through the General Assembly.
The Foundation showcased its gratitude to the United Nations General Assembly and all the Member States for the kind gesture of recognizing the tragic loss of Vieira de Mello and his colleagues, along with all the humanitarian personnel who made great sacrifices in helping the victims during the humanitarian crises.This year World Humanitarian Day comes as the world continues to fight the COVID-19 pandemic over recent months.
Aid workers are overcoming unprecedented access hurdles to assist people in humanitarian crises in 54 countries, as well as in a further nine countries which have been catapulted into humanitarian need by the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 has been a great problem to humanitarian aid all around the world.
Don’t look for big things, just do small things with great love. The smaller the thing, the greater must be our love.To have courage and be kind- is what humanity comprises. We can always do our bit for better humanitarian purposes. Be it donating to charity or helping the Covid 19 victims through fieldwork- our share is important like any other. Even sharing about it on social media helps to create awareness, which is a very necessary task.
