WORLD HUMANITARIAN DAY, 2019
“It is He Who hath produced you from a single soul: here is a place of sojourn and a place of departure: We detail Our signs for people who understand.”
Surah Al-An’am: 98
The World Humanitarian Day is celebrated every year on 19 August, World Humanitarian Day is directed towards honouring humanitarian efforts worldwide and propagating the idea of supporting people in crisis. On this day, Sakinah Medical Outreach advocates on behalf of the entire humanitarian community.
The Day gives special recognition to all humanitarian, and commemorates those of them who have lost their lives in the cause of duty. It marks the day on which the then Special Representative of the Secretary-General to Iraq, Sérgio Vieira de Mello and 21 of his colleagues tragically made the ultimate sacrifice following the bombing of the UN Headquarters in Baghdad on 19 August 2003.
