Mariam Al Hammadi, Director, The Big Heart Foundation (TBHF), World Humanitarian Day 2022 statement
Not a moment passes by without humanitarian heroes going above and beyond to alleviate the sufferings of vulnerable people and save lives. These efforts must be recognised and celebrated as they stand tall in the face of monumental challenges of conflict, climate change, a global pandemic, hunger and displacement.
Here in Sharjah and the UAE, we are resolutely committed to doing our best to help the millions of women, men and children whose lives have been upended by crises. On the occasion of World Humanitarian Day 2022, The Big Heart Foundation salutes the humanitarian spirit of first responders, aid workers and civil society members working selflessly amid unprecedented need. Away from the spotlight and out of the headlines they come together to ease suffering and bring hope.
Indeed #ItTakesAVillage to create lasting humanitarian change. More than ever, we need humanitarian action, and from the smallest gestures to the biggest contributions – each one will go a long way in helping secure the futures of vulnerable populations worldwide. So come, and join our global village of humanitarians who are working day and night to provide life-saving support to people most in need.
