Today is World Humanitarian
Day – a day to remember that at the heart of being a
humanitarian is humanity. To celebrate the
service of humanitarians around the globe, we invited a few DisasterReady
learners to recognize a colleague or friend who lost their life walking
alongside communities during humanitarian emergencies or conflict.
We have put these images together into a new
video to honor humanitarians around the world who risk
their own lives to help others at their most desperate and vulnerable
At DisasterReady, we are proud to
support over 500,000 humanitarians, many of whom risk their own lives in
the most dangerous locations and conflict areas in the world. We are so
grateful to all of you and appreciate the sacrifices you make to provide
life-saving support and protection to people most in need. We wish you
continued health and safety.
