World Humanitarian Day - Case Study
Updated: Jul 10
World Humanitarian Day was established in 2008 by the United Nations General Assembly and was first officially celebrated in 2009. The date of 19th August was chosen as it marks the anniversary of the bombing of the Canal Hotel in Baghdad, an event in which the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Sergio Vieira de Mellothe and twenty others lost their lives.
As organisations worldwide honour this day in a range of ways from fundraisers to lectures and other events all aimed at raising awareness, UNAA NSW would like to recognise the compassion and bravery of people who unselfishly attempt to save lives and provide relief to those most in need through innovative way using technology to improve aid in humanitarian aid.
Was to source a speaker with a refugee background and a compelling story that inspired our audience. Our recommendation for Dr Munjeed Al Muderis was well received and was a perfect fit to celebrate this amazing day. We also looked after the logistics and delivery of the event.
