In celebration of humanity and ‘people helping people’, the chart topper explained:
We all see the headlines and we think what can I really do to help?
World Humanitarian Day is an opportunity for all of us to work together to make a difference. This is our time to leave our mark on the world and show that we were here and we care.
Her sentiments were echoed by the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, Valerie Amos- who added:
World Humanitarian Day celebrates Humanitarian work. I hope I hope everyone will pledge to complete at least one humanitarian action – however great or small – through www.whd-iwashere.org. Together we can create an unprecedented awareness of the plight of people affected by crises around the world.
