World Humanitarian Day


World Humanitarian Day is observed annually on August 19th to pay tribute to the selfless individuals who dedicate their lives to helping others in need. This year, the theme for World Humanitarian Day is #NoMatterWhat and it emphasises on the importance of helping our communities in times of need.

Humanitarians have played a crucial role in responding to crisis around the world. They have been at the forefront, providing essential services, supporting healthcare workers, and ensuring that vulnerable populations receive the necessary assistance. Their dedication and selflessness have been instrumental in mitigating the impact of the crisis.

This year’s campaign aims to shed light on the diverse activities undertaken by humanitarians during challenging times. From providing medical aid and distributing food to organizing community support networks, these individuals have been the backbone of relief efforts. Their tireless work has made a significant difference in the lives of countless individuals and communities.

Poverty, often characterized by a lack of basic necessities such as food, shelter, and healthcare, is a complex issue with multifaceted causes. It is a vicious cycle that traps individuals and communities in a state of deprivation, limiting their opportunities for growth and development. However, humanitarian work aims to break this cycle by providing immediate relief and implementing long-term solutions.

One of the most critical aspects of humanitarian work is ensuring food security. Access to nutritious and sufficient food is a fundamental human right, yet millions of people around the world suffer from hunger and malnutrition. Humanitarian organizations work tirelessly to address this issue by providing emergency food aid, implementing sustainable agricultural practices, and promoting community-based initiatives.

However, food insecurity and endemic poverty are present not only in places of crisis but also in our communities and where we live. In fact, the UK’s food poverty is among the highest in Europe despite the fact that UK scores 6th as a one of the richest countries, Big Issue states

Moreover, according to the Food Foundation, more than 9 million people experience food poverty and are struggling to meet their basic food needs. In 2023, it has been reported that more than 3 million people do not eat the whole day because they don’t have access to food or can afford it.

As we celebrate World Humanitarian Day this year, we want to shed a light on the fantastic our team at the Community Hubb does and we supported local communities and people in need. To learn how you can get involved in what we do for our communities: https://www.stepstowork.co.uk/community-hub
