Our Aim Foundation reaffirms its support during World Humanitarian Day

Dunedin US – August 21st 2023 / Our AIM Foundation /

Every year on August 19th, Our Aim Foundation joins the world in commemorating World Humanitarian Day – a day of deep significance that pays tribute to the courageous aid workers who have made the ultimate sacrifice while selflessly serving in times of crisis. Since its establishment by the United Nations General Assembly in 2009, this day has held a special place in our hearts, reminding us of the vital role played by these heroes and the profound impact of their work in regions facing adversity across the globe.

Origin and Essence

The origin of World Humanitarian Day is rooted in a tragic event that shook the international community. The year was 2003, when a devastating bomb attack in Baghdad, Iraq, claimed the lives of 22 United Nations workers. This heart-wrenching incident galvanized the global community into action, leading to the institution of a dedicated day to honor the bravery and dedication of humanitarian workers. Over the years, this annual observance has evolved into a poignant reminder of the challenges these individuals face and the sacrifices they willingly make.

Solidarity in Motion

The theme for World Humanitarian Day 2023, “Standing Together,” resonates deeply with Our Aim Foundation’s ethos. In a world rife with intricate challenges such as geopolitical tensions, disregard for international humanitarian laws, targeted attacks on aid workers, and the spread of misinformation, this theme serves as a powerful reminder of the strength that unity and collaboration can bring. Our Aim Foundation recognizes that through collective efforts, we can surmount these obstacles and continue to make a lasting impact.
