World Humanitarian Day

Every year on August 19th we mark World Humanitarian Day in honour of aid workers, who have lost their lives in the line of duty. We commemorate their sacrifice and reaffirm our commitment to the lifesaving work that humanitarians carry out around the world every day, often in difficult and dangerous circumstances, where others cannot or do not want to go. This year our World Humanitarian Day campaign is calling on people to answer a QUESTION: ‘What do you think the world needs more of?’”

- Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

MY ANSWER: On World Humanitarian Day... what the world needs now -- and more of -- is 
L O V E.

Pure and simple.
