Join the 5th Memorial Event for Humanitarian Aid Workers on Thursday 16th August 2018, a few days before 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. We'd be delighted if you would join us for the memorial event and we encourage you to send this invite around to your friends and networks.
