Will You Be a Humanitarian on 19th August?
 
Worldwide, August 17, 2017 - Will you be a humanitarian on Aug 19th, which is World Humanitarian Day, by helping ANYONE in need. Do not ignore a cry for help, on Saturday August 19, be a humanitarian by helping the first needy person you meet.
 
For WHD 2017, humanitarian partners are coming together to reaffirm that civilians caught in conflict are #NotATarget.
 
Just for World Humanitarian Day 2017, this is what you can do:
  1. Through a global online campaign with Facebook Live you could raise your voice, to demand that world leaders protect civilians, through Twitter and Facebook at https://worldhumanitarianday.org
  2. Have you looked away sometimes when you meet a beggar or a cry for help? On Aug 19th, be a humanitarian and give to ANYONE who asks for help.
  3. To spread goodwill, share this poster and send us photos or videos of your humanitarian act and tag #IamAHumanitarian and #UnitedSikhs

UNITED SIKHS is a UN affiliated, international humanitarian relief NGO that was set up in New York in 1999. To date, our volunteers have served humanity through 26 humanitarian relief projects in war zones, after earthquakes, floods or cyclones, around the world, the latest project was in Bangladesh for the Mora cyclone victims. We want everyone to be a humanitarian on Aug 19th to make it our 27th humanitarian project.
 
To mark World Humanitarian Day, UNITED SIKHS volunteers in Gurdaspur, Panjab, will launch a health and medical Camp on Aug 27th at the historical Gurdwara Tahli Sahib, in the border area of Gurdaspur (Panjab). Thereafter, they will conduct a monthly camp on the last Sunday of every month.
 
If you can't think of a humanitarian act to do, would you like to sponsor a farmer suicide widow's pension under the UNITED SIKHS's Rescue a Family (RAF) project. To know more about our Rescue a Family project and farmer suicide problem, kindly visit: http://www.unitedsikhs.org/makepovertyhistory/
 
At present, UNITED SIKHS is providing a long term sustainable support by giving monthly pensions to 170 farmer suicide widows and aims to support, by 2019, 1000 families of the farmers who committed suicide.
 
You could start a monthly donation of 1000 INR/ $16/12 so that the children of the farmer widow do not leave their school and are not forced into child labour. You could donate for Rescue a Family at: http://www.unitedsikhs.org/donate.php
