World Humanitarian Day 2019 is set to celebrate Women Humanitarians and their undying contribution in making the world a better place. Women Humanitarians hold a sense of unparalleled uniqueness, one that adds to the global momentum of female strength, power and perseverance. It is time to honor the women who have acted as first responders to the darkest hours of crisis.[i]

This year, to mark World Humanitarian Day, Life Builders Initiative is set to hold a Town Hall meeting which is aimed bringing together key stakeholders already playing a role in supporting the poor, under-served and internally displaced persons in Abuja together with the beneficiaries to discuss the successes of interventions, the impact and the needs which would have shape future interventions.

This is also aimed at celebrating the efforts of Women Humanitarians who have selflessly responded to the call of making the world a better place and awakening the general public to the humanitarian roles they have to play in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
