On 19th August 2019, we celebrate the World Humanitarian Day by saluting the Somali women working in the humanitarian sector, and we also honor the humanitarian workers who risk, and sometimes lose, their lives to help.
This World Humanitarian Day, the UN and partners are launching the #WomenHumanitarians global campaign to pay special tribute to and raise support for the work women do to save lives and alleviate human suffering.
About the World Humanitarian Day
In 2008, the United Nations General Assembly designated 19 August as World Humanitarian Day to raise awareness about humanitarian assistance worldwide and to pay tribute to the people who risk their lives to provide it. This was in honor of the 22 people, seven of whom were women, who lost their lives in the 2013 attack on the Canal hotel in Baghdad, Iraq, including the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Iraq, Sergio Vieira de Mello.
We offer a wide range of services to clients in helping tackle, and address transition and development dilemmas, turning challenges into opportunities and engaging local communities to develop homegrown solutions to threats and challenges.
