World Humanitarian Day is held on 19 August every year to pay tribute to aid workers who risk their lives in humanitarian service, to promote the protection of humanitarian workers under international law, and to generate support for people affected by crises.
This World Humanitarian Day 2019 we honour women humanitarians – their work, experiences and stories. We acknowledge their tireless work as frontline responders, organisational and community leaders, advocates for women’s and girl’s rights in crises, peacebuilders, and drivers of effective humanitarian action.
Our event will commence with readings at the Humanitarian Workers Memorial, followed by a panel discussion in the Chapel at the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture. Light refreshments will be provided following the event.
The panel discussion will be moderated by Louise Aubin, UNHCR Representative
