World Humanitarian Day History
World Humanitarian Day seeks to recognize the compassion and bravery of humanitarian workers. The day also serves to gain international cooperation to meet the needs of humanitarian work around the world. Humanitarian workers provide life-saving assistance like first aid. They also offer nutrition, shelter, and help with rebuilding after disaster strikes. These workers often battle violence, local diseases, and hunger while attempting to save lives and provide relief to those most in need.
World Humanitarian Day was established by the United Nations in December of 2008 to honor the sacrifices of humanitarian workers. It is celebrated annually on August 19, a day that commemorates the 2003 bombing of the UN Headquarters in Iraq.
