World Humanitarian Day 2015

August 19th was World Humanitarian Day, which is a time to recognize those who willingly put their lives in danger 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. Organizations and agencies around the world hosted events and issued special edition articles and publications to commemorate the day, including tributes to humanitarian aid workers collected by the National Memorial for Aid Workers in the UK. World Humanitarian Day is also an opportunity to celebrate the spirit that inspires humanitarian work around the globe.
