La région arabe de l’AISG a été très active durant cette pandémie. Mais célébrer « la Journée mondiale de l’aide humanitaire » a une très forte signification en ces temps de pandémie du Covid 19.
C’est après le 19 août 2003 où une trentaine de personnes des Nations Unies (HCR) et d’organisations humanitaires sont morts à Bagdad (Irak) après l’explosion d’un camion perpétrée par des militants que les Nations Unies ont institué cette « Journée mondiale de l’aide humanitaire » du 19 août. Il s’agit de rendre hommage à la contribution des travailleurs humanitaires à travers le monde.
L’aide humanitaire est une façon d’aider les populations précaires dans le monde (pauvres, sinistrées (catastrophes, guerre), pandémies, réfugiés etc… Bravo à la Région de la région arabe de cet engagement qui pourrait être un exemple pour les autres régions de l’AISG.

The ISGF Arab region has been very active during this pandemic. But celebrating "World Humanitarian Day" has a very strong meaning in these times of the Covid 19 pandemic. It was after August 19, 2003 when about thirty people from the United Nations (UNHCR) and humanitarian organizations died in Baghdad (Iraq) after the explosion of a truck perpetrated by militants that the United Nations established this “World Humanitarian Day” of August 19.
It is about paying tribute to the contribution of aid workers around the world. Humanitarian aid is a way of helping vulnerable populations in the world (poor, disaster victims (disasters, war), pandemics, refugees etc ...Congratulations to the Arab Region for this commitment which could be an example for the other regions of the ISGF.
