World Humanitarian Day

The United Nations has declared August 19 World Humanitarian Day to honor those who face danger and adversity in order to help others. The date was chosen to correspond to the 2003 bombing of the United Nations building in Iraq in memory and honor of humanitarian aid workers around the world. This year’s campaign "I Was Here" is about making your mark by doing something good, somewhere, for someone else.
