World Humanitarian Day 2014

World Humanitarian Day 2014



On 19th August each year, humanitarian workers across the globe celebrate World Humanitarian Day - a day tainted with poignancy for some, but also a celebration of the work that is carried out to save hundreds of thousands of lives every year. For TSF, it is the perfect occasion to remind you of a few key figures since our foundation in 1998.
