It´s #WorldHumanitarianDay, and we must honour our #HumanitarianHeroes!

unnamed

Today, August 19th is the World Humanitarian Day!

It is a day to honour the selfless dedication of humanitarian workers around the world, and remember those #HumanitarianHeroes whom we have lost in the line of duty.

 

People just like me, and you, that decided to dedicate their lifes to make this world a better place, and that end up putting their lifes at risk while trying to make a difference.

Attacks against humanitarians are on the rise. Over the past decade, the number of aid workers killed in attacks has tripled, passing 100 deaths a year. Syria, Afghanistan, and South Sudan now rank as the most dangerous countries for humanitarian staff.

 Enough is enough! #HumanitarianHeroes must be protected!
