• World Humanitarian Day 2016

    The world is facing the largest humanitarian crisis since WWII. Today, over 130 million people around the world are caught in conflict and disaster, and need humanitarian assistance to survive.

    Every day, they face impossible choices, like deciding between buying food or medicine for their families, or choosing which of their children to give the last life vest to.

    This World Humanitarian Day, we stand in solidarity with people affected by crisis and advocate for a world where no one has to make these impossible choices.

    We unite as one humanity.
