World Humanitarian Day

On World Humanitarian Day, France pays tribute to all humanitarian aid workers. Their commitment is more than ever necessary as we face greater needs, longer crises and increasing violations of international humanitarian law.

France reiterates its commitment to the implementation of Security Council Resolution 2286 regarding the protection of humanitarian personnel and medical facilities during conflicts. France will continue to defend the security of humanitarian personnel with determination. International humanitarian law must be respected in all circumstances.

Within the framework of its 2018-2022 Humanitarian Strategy, France contributes to international solidarity and stability by tripling its humanitarian assistance and providing 500 million euros every year by 2022.

France remains true to its values, its commitments and maintains its solidarity.
