The role of humanitarian institutions on the day of human solidarity

International humanitarian institutions

International humanitarian institutions play a key role in humanitarian solidarity, promoting humanitarian action and providing assistance to needy groups around the world. These institutions seek to provide humanitarian relief to those affected by natural disasters, armed conflicts, epidemics and other humanitarian crises. It also works to empower local communities and strengthen their capacities to adapt to natural hazards and climate changes and provide the necessary resources to reduce poverty and hunger and improve living conditions in the affected areas.

Local humanitarian institutions

Local humanitarian institutions play an important role in humanitarian solidarity, as they have a better understanding of the needs and problems faced by local communities, and can provide the necessary support to individuals and families in need in those areas. These institutions promote the concept of local cooperation and social solidarity, and encourage communities to participate in providing the services and support they need. These institutions are also a vital partner for international humanitarian institutions in the implementation of humanitarian solidarity programs in various regions.

The challenges facing the World Solidarity Day

Lack of resources

The humanitarian Solidarity Day faces several challenges, the most prominent of which is the lack of financial and human resources available for implementation, which constitutes an obstacle to providing the necessary assistance to needy groups. Humanitarian organizations are doing everything possible to raise donations and secure the necessary funding for the implementation of humanitarian solidarity programs, but the urgent humanitarian need often exceeds what resources can be provided. Humanitarian institutions also face legal and administrative restrictions in some countries, which provide obstacles to the provision of humanitarian assistance.

Moreover, humanitarian institutions may be exposed to security and health risks during the implementation of their programs, especially in areas of conflict and current humanitarian crises. Difficulties may also arise in the delivery of assistance to needy groups as a result of high levels of violence in those areas, which leads to disruption of humanitarian efforts.

Therefore, efforts should be made to overcome these obstacles by strengthening international cooperation and encouraging governments to provide the necessary support to humanitarian institutions.emphasis should also be placed on strengthening the capacities of local humanitarian institutions to improve their ability to provide the necessary assistance to needy groups in their regions.


The humanitarian Solidarity Day faces many great challenges, as the lack of financial and Human Resources stands as an obstacle to the implementation of many relief and assistance programs, which negatively affects the ability of humanitarian institutions to provide the necessary assistance to the needy groups. In addition, humanitarian institutions may face difficulties in managing their programs because they are exposed to many security and health risks, which further complicates humanitarian efforts.

To overcome these obstacles, international cooperation should be strengthened, governments should be encouraged to provide the necessary support to humanitarian institutions, and the capacities of local institutions should be improved to meet the needs of the needy and vulnerable groups in the affected communities.

Moreover, the importance of the humanitarian solidarity day lies in raising the awareness of communities about the importance of providing assistance and caring for needy groups around the world. The importance of this day is also to raise awareness about the challenges and risks facing vulnerable communities and people deprived of basic human rights.

In this regard, AHAD is interested in the World Solidarity Day, an association working in Africa, and is working to organize many events and activities to raise awareness of the importance of humanitarian assistance and motivate communities to participate in support and contribute to the spread of good and giving.
