19th August is World Humanitarian Day . Held every year on 19 August to pay tribute to aid workers who risk their lives in humanitarian service, and to rally support for people affected by crises around the world.
Never before were so many people around the world dependent on humanitarian assistance as they were last year. German support for those in need, which reached a new high in 2017, is thus all the more important.
For 50 years, the German Foreign Office together with its partners has been contributing to Germany’s humanitarian aid effort, see Video-Link below.
