World Humanitarian Day

19 August is World Humanitarian Day!

World Humanitarian Day is a time to recognize those who face danger and adversity in order to help others. The day was designated by the General Assembly to coincide with the anniversary of the 2003 bombing of the United Nations headquarters in Baghdad, Iraq.

World Humanitarian Day is also an opportunity to celebrate the spirit that inspires humanitarian work around the globe.

This year, the UN and its humanitarian partners invite all of you to inspire the world's humanity. The theme calls on you to join any of the world's humanitarian organizations and become an active messenger of Humanity.

Please visit - www.worldhumanitarianday.org - for more information and use the hashtag #ShareHumanity on social media to help raise awareness.
