World Humanitarian Day – Real Life Heroes

Each year on World Humanitarian Day we pay tribute to those who dedicate their time to improving the lives of those most in need.

At each stage of the disaster cycle, humanitarians work tirelessly to help communities prepare, withstand and recover from disaster and conflict. Here at RedR Australia, we would like to take the opportunity to express our deepest gratitude to humanitarians globally, with a special mention to the incredible people who deploy through our humanitarian roster.

This year the UN theme of World Humanitarian Day is #RealLifeHeroes.

In a time of layered humanitarian disasters made more difficult by the threat of COVID-19, this campaign honours the real-life-heroes who are on the front line of the response – the nurses, doctors, logisticians, and hidden people who use their time and skills for the benefit of humanity.

Join us this World Humanitarian Day by following us on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter and showing your support for the humanitarians we are celebrating.
