UK: Muslim Aid message on World Humanitarian Day

21st Aug 2013

London, (Muslim Aid): On the occasion of World Humanitarian Day, Muslim Aid expressed its sincere appreciation for aid workers in the UK and overseas offering their time and commitment to serve humanity.

The day provides an opportunity to celebrate the spirit of humanitarian workers and acknowledges the contribution of millions of men and women around the globe who risk their lives during disasters and generously provide their time, resources and expertise to support the needy.

A spokesperson for Muslim Aid said: “Aid workers are instrumental in the successful implementation of our vast array of programmes and emergency campaigns caring for needy people around the world. Their courage and passion to ease the suffering of others is highly commendable. Some compromise their own personal safety especially in conflict and war zones to deliver aid and we express our deep-felt gratitude for their commitment and  bravery.”

Responding to emergencies during conflicts and political crisis is not easy. Relief for the victims of disasters and humanitarian crisis is not possible without the skills and dedication of the aid workers. Their determination is an inspiration for other actors engaged in humanitarian and development activities in some of the most impoverished and challenging regions in the world.
