World Humanitarian Day

Natta is recognising World Humanitarian Day…

World Humanitarian Day is directed towards honouring humanitarian efforts worldwide and helps to support people in crisis.

About 40% of humanitarian workers are women. The campaign for 2019 focuses upon the recognition that women deserve in the strengthening of global humanitarian response as well as in protection efforts under the international law.

The overall aim is to make the world a better place.

We focus on the half a million unsung heroes every year who have long been working on the front lines in their own communities in some of the most difficult terrains, from the war-wounded in Afghanistan, to the food insecure in the Sahel, to those who have lost their homes and livelihoods in places such as Central African Republic, South Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

This World Humanitarian Day, we continue to recognize the suffering of millions of civilians caught in conflict. People in cities and towns struggle to find food, water, and safe shelter while fighting drives millions from their homes. Schools are destroyed and children are recruited and forced to fight. Women are abused and used as tools of war. As humanitarian workers deliver aid and medical workers help the wounded and sick, they are directly targeted, treated as threats, and prevented from bringing relief and care to those in desperate need.

Thanks to humanitarians around the world for making our world a safer, stronger and more human place for all.

Happy World Humanitarian Day!
