National Workshop on Disaster Response and Planning and Celebrating World Humanitarian Day 2013

Serving the cause of peace is a dangerous occupation. Ten years ago on Monday, a terrorist attack on UN offices in Baghdad claimed the lives of 22 people.
On August 19 and always we remember our colleagues who have lost their lives in the line of duty. We commemorate their sacrifice and reaffirm our commitment to the lifesaving work that humanitarians carry out around the world every day, often in difficult and dangerous circumstances, where others cannot or do not want to go.
