António Guterres (UN Secretary-General) on World Humanitarian Day
17 Aug 2018 -  World Humanitarian Day is an opportunity to express solidarity with millions of people caught up in conflict, crisis and natural disasters.
Families forced to flee their homes for an uncertain future.
Vulnerable groups, systematically targeted.
Children whose futures are placed on hold.
Today, we pay tribute to all aid workers who risk their lives serving those in need.
They are true symbols of humanitarian commitment.
Attacks on aid workers continue to increase.
This is unacceptable. Civilians caught up in conflict and humanitarian workers are Not a Target.
Lend your voice to our campaign.
Let’s stand together to save lives and safeguard our common humanity.
Thank you.
