Humanitarians obliged to address suffering no matter where & what

ian aid is to save lives and assist the most vulnerable. Humanitarians are obliged to address suffering no matter where it is found and no matter who it affects. Humanitarians have no other purpose than to save and protect lives and deliver the basic necessities of life, they stand shoulder-toshoulder with the communities they serve and bring hope. This year, the World Humanitarian Day campaign brings together the global humanitarian community to mark the twentieth anniversary of the attack on the UN headquarters in Baghdad, Iraq, and to show their unwavering commitment to deliver for the communities they serve, no matter who, no matter where and no matter what. On 19 August, the United Nations agencies come together to honor humanitarians around the world who strive to meet evergrowing global needs. No matter the danger or the hardship, humanitarians venture deep into disaster-stricken regions and on the front lines of conflict, strive to save and protect people in need. Humanitarians are united by a shared mission to save and protect lives. They will never compromise on humanitarian principles and always strive to make the best decisions for the people they serve. However, Humanitarian work is difficult and dangerous, but the humanitarians don’t give up on their commitment to overcome the challenges and deliver life-saving assistance to people in need. The United Nations core principles are humanity, impartiality, neutrality and independence. Join their campaign and learn more about these principles that guide their work. On 19 August 2003, a bomb attack on the Canal Hotel in Baghdad, Iraq, killed 22 humanitarian aid workers, including the UN Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Iraq, Sergio Vieira de Mello. Five years later, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution designating 19 August as World Humanitarian Day (WHD). Each year, WHD focuses on a theme, bringing together partners from across the humanitarian system to advocate for the survival, well-being and dignity of people affected by crises, and for the safety and security of aid workers. For this year’s World Humanitarian Day, we show the importance, effectiveness and positive impact of humanitarian work. World Humanitarian Day is a campaign by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). It says the primary aim of humanitarian aid is to save lives and assist the most vulnerable. Humanitarians are obliged to address suffering no matter where it is found and no matter who it affects. Currently, most of the United Nations agencies are engaged in delivering humanitarian aid to those in need in Afghanistan, where the people are facing with poverty and increasing unemployment and humanitarian crisis.
