Humanitarian workers at Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, camps in the north-east have been called upon to be more dedicated and embrace selfless-service.
As part of activities marking the International Humanitarian Day 2015, the north-east zonal coordinator, National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, Alhaji Mohammed Kanar, said as their name implies they are working for humanity and should see financial benefits as secondary.
“Humanitarian workers should be motivated by passion, love and the need to impact on humanity, monetary gain should be secondary and relegated.”
Kanar said it is when humanitarian workers embrace self-service that they can be successful in their chosen field.
At a meeting organised by the agency’s north-east zonal office in conjunction with the Borno State Emergency Management Agency, BOSEMA, a minute silence was observed for the late Borno State Deputy Governor, Alhaji Zannah Umar Mustapha.
August 19 has been set aside every year by the United Nations to celebrate humanitarian participation around the world. The theme for this year’s event is ‘inspiring the world’s humanity’.
