UNHCR PRO 2:27pm, 19 August 2009
To honour all humanitarians and increase public understanding of humanitarian assistance activities worldwide, the United Nations General Assembly has chosen to dedicate the 19th of August to commemorate World Humanitarian Day. On this day, we will pause to remember the hundreds of UN and non-governmental organization workers who have lost their lives while carrying out their duties and to acknowledge the ongoing work of humanitarian staff.
