  • World Humanitarian Day

    August 19, 2014. We pay tribute today to the world’s humanitarians – those unsung heroes who, despite the risks, work to save lives on the front lines of conflict and help victims of natural disasters pick up the pieces and rebuild their communities.

I’ve met with leaders and community members in Iraq who are standing up to ISIL’s grotesque campaign of violence and terror.
