World humanitarian Day is observed on 19th August
19 August 2017 Current Affairs: World Humanitarian Day (WHD) is 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.

The theme for WHD 2017 will be  #NotATarget.

This campaign follows on the UN Secretary-General’s report on the protection of civilians, which was launched earlier this year.

Laying out his ‘path to protection’, the Secretary-General calls for enhanced respect for international humanitarian and human rights law, and protection of civilians, including humanitarian and medical workers as well as civilian infrastructure.
