“Humanitarian assistance is badly needed in many countries due to lack of political commitment, media attention and international support. The pandemic has made the situation even worse. Humanitarian crisis have worsened due to medical supply shortages. It is especially meaningful and important that we commemorate this World Humanitarian Day today. I would like to pay my highest tribute and gratitude to the great jobs of aid workers who have risked their lives in the most difficult environment extending helping hands to the helpless. Conscience is the wellspring of love, and love is at the core of humanitarian spirit,” said Dr. Hong, Tao-Tze, President of FOWPAL 

In 2008, the United Nations General Assembly designated 19 August as World Humanitarian Day to raise awareness about humanitarian assistance worldwide and to pay tribute to the people who risk their lives to provide it. World Humanitarian Day was commemorated for the first time on 19 August 2009.
