On 19th August 2020, a global campaign with #RealLifeHeroes is going to happen to celebrate humanitarians with a THANK YOU for committing their lives in helping other people during difficult circumstances without knowing the risk and unpopularity for these deeds.

This campaign would be presenting the stories of the humanitarians who are inspiring the world by treating and preventing the disease, providing safe shelter to the women and girls in the lockdown, giving food to the vulnerable people, running refugge camps and all in this pandemic situations when everyone was preferring to stay home. With this campaign, this day would be celebrating the real heroes’ lives by motivating others to come forward and lend a helping hand to the people who need it.

As the whole world is facing many difficulties this year, therefore the main focus of this campaign is to let people learn about the driving force of these humanitarians to risk their lives and continue to save the lives despite of various conflicts, risks linked with COVID-19, and lack of access. Due to the restrictions made by the government during the crisis, humanitarians faced challenges and as a result many local people, communities, and NGO took part in serving people with food and many necessary items.
