New Delhi: August, 2014.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” said Sandeep Marwah Ambassador of International Human Rights Organization affiliated to United Nations.
This year the UN and its humanitarian partners continue their ground-breaking campaign called The world needs more… which is the first-of-its-kind project that turns words into aid.
“Humanitarian workers and their families are hit hardest by these crimes. But they are also felt by millions of others. Let us honor the fallen by protecting those who carry on their work – and supporting humanitarian relief operations worldwide.” Said Secretary General Ban Ki Moon.
