The International Humanitarian City (IHC) will organise a walk to mark World Humanitarian Day 2014, a global celebration to recognise those who face danger and adversity and help them, on August 19.

The day was designated by the UN General Assembly to coincide with the anniversary of the death of 22 people when the UN headquarters was bombed in Baghdad in 2008

The event, entitled ‘A Walk for Humanitarian Heroes,' will be held at The Dubai Mall, under the Patronage of Princess Haya bint Al Hussein, UN Messenger of Peace, Chairperson of International Humanitarian City, and wife of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the U.A.E. and Ruler of Dubai, and in coordination with the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Shaima Al Zarooni, CEO of IHC, said the campaign aims to symbolise peoples' solidarity with all humanitarian workers around the world, and promote awareness among the community for humanitarian work across the globe. "We are pleased and honoured to have the support of many notable local artists such as Fayez Al Saeed, Balqees Ahmed Fathi, Rania Shaban, Roua Al Saban, Ahmad Abdullah, Saoud Al Kaabi and poet Anwer Al Mashiri in this campaign,” she said.

"With the unfortunate series of humanitarian crises that IHC and its member organisations have been responding to, we are keen on spreading the message on the importance of humanitarian heroes around the world,” Al Zarooni added. – Khaleej Times - http://www.khaleejtimes.com/kt-article-display-1.asp?xfile=data/nationgeneral/2014/August/nationgeneral_August151.xml§ion=nationgeneral
