World Humanitarian Day

World Humanitarian Day is one of the 148 international days currently observed by the United Nations. By a coincidence, August 19th is also observed as World Photography Day, because on August 19, 1839, the French Government announced the Invention of Photography as a gift "Free to the World." Since 2009, every year, this day is commemorated on different themes. The theme of 2010 was "We are Humanitarian Workers" which was based on the actual work and achievements of humanitarian workers in the field. Similarly, the 2011 campaign, "People Helping People" was about inspiring the spirit of aid work in everyone. The theme of 2014 was 'The World Needs More' and in 2015, it was about "Inspiring the World's Humanity".
