Leaving behind their loved ones and the comfort and safety of their homes, aid workers of every race, creed, colour and background work selflessly on every continent and make a difference to the lives of complete strangers.
Putting aside all thought for their safety and comfort, members of the NGO community offer assistance to those devastated by natural man-made disasters. They are the ambassadors of goodwill whose intervention into the lives of millions and whose devotion to duty reminds the world that the spirit of sacrifice lives on.
Without the support of the international humanitarian community, disadvantaged and vulnerable communities would be left without support and hope. For many, this is exactly what is happening today.
