Celebrating and Honoring all Humanitarian Workers on World Humanitarian Day

Today, on 𝗪𝗼𝗿𝗹𝗱 𝗛𝘂𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗶𝘁𝗮𝗿𝗶𝗮𝗻 𝗗𝗮𝘆, we celebrate & honor all humanitarian workers who provide life-saving assistance to the most vulnerable and at-risk communities, despite the odds.

This year we also pay a special tribute to frontliners because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we commemorate humanitarian workers killed and injured in the course of their work. They are #RealLifeHeroes.

In celebration of #WorldHumanitarianDay, meet one of our #RealLifeHeroes: Maricel Vina Menez

Wearing masks is a vital safety measure particularly in our line of work. Our teams in the field take all the necessary precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to the communities we serve while ensuring the continuity of our life-saving programs. Many of these measures are designed to protect health workers in communities & facilities, and are in line with the World Health Organization and UN guidelines. Thus, as part of our preparedness measures, we make sure that our teams wear masks to ensure not only their own safety, but also the safety of the people we work with.
