The Memorial Events for Humanitarian Aid Workers have been held at Westminster Abbey, on the eve of World Humanitarian Day. The events honour those who died in the service of humanitarianism, recognise our common humanitarian ideals and celebrate the spirit that inspires humanitarian action around the globe.
Join us for the 3rd Memorial Event for Humanitarian Aid Workers on Thursday 18th August 2016, the eve of World Humanitarian Day, at Westminster Abbey. The event will begin with Evensong (4.40pm for 5.00pm start) in the Abbey: however, there is no requirement for you to attend the service if you would prefer to join us immediately afterwards (6.00pm start) for the wreath-laying. This takes place outside the Abbey at the Memorial for Innocent Victims of Oppression, Violence and War and lasts approximately 20 minutes. The wreath-laying ceremony will not be nationality- or faith-based and is open to all those who would like to attend.
The memorial event seeks to honour those who died in the service of humanitarianism, to recognise our common humanitarian ideals and to celebrate the spirit that inspires humanitarian action around the globe. The event is for families, friends, colleagues and organisations to honour those who lost their lives in humanitarian action.
If you would like to attend the memorial this year, please sign up here or email firstname.lastname@example.org and provide us with your address so that we can send to you an invite in the post.
