World Humanitarian Day 2016

 

On August 19th 2003, the United Nations Headquarters in Baghdad was attacked resulting in 22 deaths and countless injuries. In memory of these attacks, the United Nations officially declared August 19th World Humanitarian Day.

The Iraq Foundation would like to commemorate the brave men and women who continuously risk their lives in order to help the most desperate of causes around the globe. Iraq is not alone in its struggle for democracy, progress, equality and peace. In regards to this year’s theme of “One Humanity,” these issues challenge our existence as a whole, and we as a society can not move forward unless we work together to build a better world for the generations to come. On behalf of the Iraq Foundation, we would like to thank those who selflessly devote their time to something that is greater than themselves, and urge others to follow in their footsteps.
