STOPAIDS members, Bond document 6 humanitarian workers’ experiences for World Humanitarian Day on August 19th.
From responding to the aftermath of earthquakes and floods to protecting civilians in conflict-affected areas, thousands of aid workers are helping others around the globe. For World Humanitarian Day (19 August), six brave humanitarian workers share their experiences of working on the frontline.
“We need to get our people back – people want to come home. They don’t want to live in tents in hardship. They want to come home. Life is hard for them. But it is not safe here so we are so important. Our work is so important. My family is so proud of me and they trust me – so they know I will be OK.” – Sharabun (pictured above), MAG in Iraq
