Celebrating World Humanitarian Day

Since December of 2008, August 19th has become important day of observance amongst the international community. The United Nations General Assembly marked today as a day to “contribute to increasing public awareness about humanitarian work and the importance of international cooperation, and to commemorate all humanitarian and United Nations and associated personnel who have worked in the promotion of the humanitarian cause, and those who have lost their lives in the course of duty.”

People Helping People Global would like to extend a brief yet sincere thank you to all of those humanitarians out there who have devoted their lives to serving others. We would also like to take a moment to remember all of the humanitarians who have lost their lives while serving the global community.
