World Humanitarian Day

World Humanitarian Day seeks to recognize the compassion and bravery of humanitarian workers. The day also serves to gain international cooperation to meet the needs of humanitarian work around the world. Humanitarian workers provide life-saving assistance consisting of first aid, nutrition, shelter and help rebuild after disaster has struck. These workers often battle violence, local diseases and hunger while attempting to save lives and provide relief to those most in need.

A Look at the History

World Humanitarian Day was designated by the United Nations in December of 2008 in an effort to honor the sacrifices of humanitarian workers. It is celebrated annually on August 19, a day that commemorates the 2003 bombing of the UN Headquarters in Iraq.


US and Iraq

In 2016, Iraq was the country that received the most Foreign Aid from the United States.


Lending a Helping Hand

The US is the top national donor in terms of raw dollars allocated to humanitarian aid. However, among developed nations, it donates the lowest percentage of its GDP.


Collective Effort

Despite all the money and aid that is being given for humanitarian relief, it is still estimated that one-third of all global humanitarian needs are not being met.


Things To Do on this Day

Donate to MedShare International. It recycles surplus medical supplies and equipment from hospitals and clinics and redistributes them to health care facilities in nations in need.

Watch a movie about humanitarian work. Some suggestions are: Hotel Rwanda (2004), The Stoning of Soraya M. (2008), Beyond the Call (2006), Selma(2015), and the Normal Heart (2014).

Spread awareness on social media by using the hashtags #WorldHumanitarianDay, #WHD and #Humanitarianwork.


My home was on the market with three real estate agents and it didn't sell. They all told me that the luxury market was very slow and my home was way overpriced. Amit sold my house in two and half weeks over the asking price. Couldn't be happier!

Amit knows the luxury real estate market better than any other agent in Miami.

"Amit knows the luxury real estate market better than any other agent in Miami. When it comes to listings, I went back and looked at some of his previous and current listings and I was extremely impressed with the way he marketed his listings and the results he had produced for his past clients. I would definitely trust Amit to sell my home in the Miami area."
