Every year on 19 August, World Humanitarian Day is celebrated to honour humanitarian efforts worldwide. This year’s theme set by OCHA is Women Humanitarians and supports the recognition that women deserve in the strengthening of global humanitarian response as well as in protection efforts under the international law.
Partnering with Dublin blogger Humans of Dublin, we set out to tell the stories of some of the women who make Concern what it is. In the lead-up to World Humanitarian Day and over a three-day time period, our overseas and Dublin-based teams shared short snippets of what it's like to walk in their shoes for a day.
