The day aims to increase public awareness about humanitarian assistance activities worldwide and the importance of international cooperation. It also honors all humanitarians who have worked in the promotion of humanitarian causes, and those who have lost their lives in the cause of this duty.
Humanitarians provide life-saving assistance to millions of people worldwide. They place their own lives at risk to help others in conflict zones and areas of natural hazards. Humanitarians provide support for different world challenges such as hunger, gender-based violence, refugees and displaced people, help for children, as well as clean water and access to sanitation.
