This World Humanitarian Day we stand with those affected by conflict and violence

My innocence is not your weapon, my city is not a battlefield

In war zones, children must hide from bombing beneath their beds, rather than learning at their desks. Families are forced to flee their towns, rather than build their homes, livelihoods and communities.

Not A Target

This World Humanitarian Day (19 August 2017) we come together in solidarity with people trapped in conflict, to reaffirm that civilians are #NotATarget and demand world leaders to take action to protect them.

Join the UN in advocating for the protection of civilians, including aid and health workers, and all those affected by conflict.

Healthworkers are not a target
