According to a news release from the World Health Organization (WHO), ahead of World Humanitarian Day, they would like to put the spotlight on the continued attacks on health staff and health facilities in troubled areas of the world where, ironically, the most help is needed. In 2014 alone, WHO received reports of 372 attacks in 32 countries on health workers, which resulted in 603 deaths and 958 injuries.
In a new social media initiative to honor health workers, WHO will launch an online campaign to recognise the efforts of doctors, nurses and other staff risking their own lives to help others at the heart of the crises, and also to remind Member States and parties to conflict to stand by their commitments to protect health workers and health systems.
The online campaign #ThanksHealthHero aims to gather tributes to honor the efforts of health professionals across the globe. Between World Humanitarian Day and the World Humanitarian Summit in May 2016, send your messages of thanks or share a photo of a health worker and tell the world why they’re a hero with the hashtag #ThanksHealthHero via social media. You can also share tribute WHO cards on your social media feeds, to do so Click Here. We at The Ultimate Fundraiser, would like to say a big thank you to all the health workers saving lives across the globe on a daily basis, #ThanksHealthHero!
