A day in honour of aid workers

Today, 19 August, marks World Humanitarian Day. This aims to recognise the work of those in the humanitarian sector and remember those who have lost their lives as a result of their work.

Dominic Crowley, head of Concern’s emergency unit, wrote an opinion piece today in the Irish Times describing the different challenges for aid workers.

Concern is hosting an event in Dublin today and this morning we received a very encouraging message from Mary McAleese, President of Ireland.
