A cool blend of contemporary & retro culture

Pay tribute to heroic frontline workers on World Humanitarian Day

Today is World Humanitarian Day, one day of the year when we can commemorate humanitarian workers around the globe, fighting for human rights and helping people hurt or killed in the course of their work – particularly hard hit by the Covid pandemic this year.

This year, aid workers are overcoming unprecedented access hurdles to assist people in humanitarian crises in over 50 countries, with Covid being the biggest challenge to humanitarian operations around the world.

If you would like to let humanitarian workers know you’re appreciating their good work, simply hashtag #RealLifeHeroes in a social post.

World Humanitarian Day was designated in memory of the 19 August 2003 bomb attack on the Canal Hotel in Baghdad, Iraq, killing 22 people, including the chief humanitarian in Iraq, Sergio Vieira de Mello, with the day formalised in 2009 by the United Nations General Assembly.

Keep the light shining.
