EU Humanitarian Aid hosts twitter chat for #WorldHumanitarianDay


The Twitter account of the EU’s humanitarian aid and civil protection department – @eu_echo – hosted a Twitter chat on the challenges of humanitarian aid on 19th August for World Humanitarian Day.

Twitter users were able to get involved in the chat and ask their questions using the hashtag #EUChat.

World Humanitarian Day takes place on the 19th August. It marks the day when, in 2003, 22 people were killed in the bombing of the UN headquarters in Baghdad. It has been described as “a day to pay tribute to all people affected by humanitarian crises and those who lost their lives in humanitarian service”.
