World Humanitarian Day is observed annually to honor aid workers who put their lives on the line in humanitarian service and to rally support for people affected by crises around the world. The history of World Humanitarian Day in Nigeria can be traced back to 2009, when the United Nations General Assembly designated August 19th as World Humanitarian Day in honor of the 22 aid workers who were killed in the 2003 Canal Hotel bombing in Baghdad, Iraq.
In Nigeria, World Humanitarian Day is commemorated to recognize the efforts of humanitarian workers who have made significant contributions to alleviating the sufferings of vulnerable individuals and communities affected by conflicts, natural disasters, and humanitarian crises. It is also a day where the Nigerian government and other partners showcase their commitment to addressing humanitarian challenges in the country.
In Nigeria, the day is marked with several activities aimed at raising awareness about the importance of humanitarian work and recognizing the contributions of aid workers. These activities include workshops, seminars, and media campaigns to highlight the needs and rights of vulnerable populations in Nigeria. World Humanitarian Day is observed annually on August 19th.
