‘One Humanity’:
shared responsibility

The world is witnessing the highest level of human suffering since the Second World War. This is why, for the first time in the 70-year history of the United Nations, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has convened the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul on 23 -24 May.

The participants will focus on:

Political leadership to prevent and end conflicts
Upholding the norms that safeguard humanity
Leaving no one behind: a commitment to address forced displacement
Changing people’s lives: from delivering aid to ending need
Financing: investing in humanity

HUMANITARIAN WORKERS MUST BE PROTECTED

Millions of people live or at least try to survive thanks to the aid delivered by humanitarian workers. Without them no action on the ground, no assistance for vulnerable people. Yet they are increasingly the targets of attacks.

ALMOST 79

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE

In need of humanitarian assistance across the world in 2015*.

NUMBERS OF ATTACKS

Attacks aiming at aid workers have tripled within 10 years.*

Our
commitment


ACF will generate momentum for the creation of a Special Procedure for the protection of aid workers - especially national staff - empowered to advance accountability of all parties to allow and facilitate unimpeded access to essential and impartial humanitarian relief, and to help in the fight against impunity for attacks on the humanitarian mission.

Support our demand

We need to strengthen the protections for humanitarian workers and fight against impunity for these crimes, which in turn threaten access to populations in need of assistance.

On this occasion, Action contre la Faim (ACF) will request the creation of a Special Procedure for the protection of aid workers.
