World Humanitarian Day

19/08/2020

This year’s World Humanitarian Day honours the front-line health workers - the Real-Life Heroes - including doctors and nurses, midwives and community volunteers, and those who risk their lives to ensure that everyone has access to health services, testing and treatment, protective equipment, and medication especially during the COVID-19 pandemic and all other emergencies. They are the people you may know from your village or town, who have been working tirelessly on the ground to bring vaccines to children, monitor the health of elderly, help mothers deliver babies safely, lead contact tracing and surveillance activities, and provide psycho-social support in times of conflict, pandemic, and natural disasters. They are our real-life heroes. Source : World Health Organization (WHO)
