On 19 August, the international community marks World Humanitarian Day in recognition of aid workers who have lost their lives in the course of their duty. This year, the United Nations has adopted the theme “Inspiring the World’s Humanity", with the aim of inspiring and empowering people to stand together and help create a more humane world. On this occasion, we are sharing a video we produced earlier this year documenting the Red Cross StoryCorps Project, during which the International Committee of the Red Cross in Washington and the American Red Cross recorded conversations between staff, volunteers, and beneficiaries about what the Red Cross means to them.
