World Humanitarian Day

Today is World Humanitarian Day. Did you know that? I had a long post written up about it, but I decided to scrap it because this video speaks louder than any words I can write. Please watch it. And then think about how you can help. There are plenty of crises happening in the world right now (including the ongoing “superfloods” in Pakistan which have so far affected more than 20 million people. Yes, million.)Maybe you could donate. Or volunteer. Or maybe just give a humanitarian worker a hug today.
“We work in dangerous environments, but we do not carry guns or take sides…”


  • I don't want to have to wait until August 19, 2011 for hugs. Can we make every day World Humanitarian Day?

  • I'm with Anonymous!

    Also- loved that video. It's rare that I get away with watching YouTube vids, and usually not worth the bother, but that most certainly was. 🙂 Thanks for sharing, Robin!

    PS In belated honour of World Humanitarian Day, you get a hug from me next time I come to the Red Cross on a weekday.
