Working with the world's poorest people to transform their lives

World Humanitarian Day

Humanitarianism is about saving lives and keeping people alive. It’s about ensuring people affected by crisis can eventually recover and lead productive lives. It is a fundamental part of what we are as human beings.

In the last 20 years, the humanitarian community’s ability to respond to crises has improved beyond all recognition.

Responding to crisis

This is due largely to the dedication of many thousands of aid workers around the world. To honour these aid workers – particularly those who have died responding to crises – 19 August has been designated World Humanitarian Day.

Voices from the field

Two new blog posts feature the voices of Concern’s own humanitarian workers.
