😁css-knbk2aWorld Humanitarian Day highlights the other side of being an aid worker – our vulnerability, just like the survivors affected by crisis 🙈 I can’t discount the feeling of being thankful when I celebrate my birthday 😉 WHD offers something more. While I feel proud and honored to be an aid worker, humility prevails. Humanitarian workers are often praised for having the passion and courage to work in difficult situations. However, the truth is, we’re also vulnerable.
This section by Dr. Muller shows the individual humanitarian. While Philanthropy Connections works in locations that usually could not be described as “hostile and dangerous,” the characteristics of “political, economic and environmental instability” are prominent figures in all of our projects. This brings all of us face to face with the lived challenges and traumas of people who we can’t truly understand, as we have never personally experienced their lives specifically, or their circumstances generally. But we are a part their lives and situations, which gives us a rich degree of empathy. Ethical responsibility. Revision by Adam Hernandez, Soshanguve (South Africa), November 16, 2021
Apart from the humanitarian crises themselves, poverty is caused by inequality and risk. It is important to identify vulnerabilities in order to mitigate risks. For example, a clinic can be set up for malnutrition cases in children or women living in refugee camps. The short-cycle seed is given to farmers that have suffered losses in the cyclone. Planted and grown quickly so that they don’t miss a harvest and lose out on food Income. As families adjust to the new normal, cash transfers can be made to them.

The issue of development cooperation is more complicated.Although many organizations in the field see peace and development both as sides of one coin, (5) in practice conflict resolution was not. Play a major role until perhaps 10 years ago. Today, more aid and development organizations recognize the importance of a secure environment for their sustainability.Some of these organizations see conflict as part and parcel of an environment that must be considered when planning projects, while others are focusing on the transformation of conflict. Conflict Impact Assessment is a branch of peace research that evaluates conflict impact.(7)
Resilience humanitarianism, on the other hand, addresses the long-term nature of current crises that often occur. Last for months Or for many years. The humanitarian model shifts aid’s focus to helping people, communities and societies recover and adapt from disasters and tragic events. This depends on local communities’ ability to develop local responses to adapt to the immediate and long-term effects of disasters. The concept of resilience humanitarianism acknowledges that international aid cannot be involved in the increasing number of natural disasters linked to climate change.

Marcelino MacQueen at e-ir.info, the debate surrounding traditional, or ‘old’, humanitarianism and ‘new’ humanitarianism is still very much relevant today as it is yet to be decided which has the more effective tenets for humanitarian organizations and agencies to abide by. As the preeminent proponent of traditional humanitarianism, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) defines humanitarian assistance as “the impartial, independent, and neutral provision of relief to those in immediate need because of conflict and natural disasters,” (Barnett and Weiss, 2008: 5). Since the Biafran War in the late 1960s, however, there has been a shift to the perspective of humanitarianism. It is now focused on alleviating poverty and suffering.
