Humanitarianism is about people helping people.
Held each Aug. 19, the United Nation’s World Humanitarian Day is a time to “recognize those who face danger and adversity in order to help others,” according to the UN’s website.
Not only is this a day to appreciate and celebrate those who help others, but it is also a time to make the move and volunteer. Neighbours, friends, strangers may not have much in common other than their willingness to help others.
Help make the world a better place on Aug. 19.Check out the list of great things to do for others at www.whd-iwashere.org including volunteer organisations that may be a fit.
