World Humanitarian Day #WHD2017

19 August is the World Humanitarian Day, held in support of people affected by crises worldwide, and in recognition of aid workers who risk their lives in humanitarian service.

On this year's World Humanitarian Day #WHD2017, we celebrate the brave men and women who are working selflessly in Nigeria and the Lake Chad Region to help internally displaced persons and other vulnerable communities in need of assistance.

Norway assists financially and otherwise, the United Nations and other organisations carrying out humanitarian work in Nigeria.

Furthermore, we recognise the commitment of the Governments in this region to ensure that these aid workers are #NotATarget.
