People helping each other in solidarity
Today is World Humanitarian Day, a time to recognize those who face danger and adversity in order to help others.
The day was designated by the General Assembly to coincide with the anniversary of the 2003 bombing of the United Nations headquarters in Baghdad, Iraq, which killed 21 UN staff.
Every day humanitarian aid workers help millions of people around the world, regardless of who they are and where they are.
