August 19 @ 4:40 pm - 6:30 pm

Free

The 6th Memorial Event for Humanitarian Aid Workers will be held on Monday 19th August 2019, in connection with World Humanitarian Day, at Westminster Abbey. The event will begin with Evensong (4.40pm for 5.00pm start) in the Abbey.

The wreath-laying ceremony will be immediately afterwards (6.00 pm) and will take place outside the Abbey at the Memorial for Innocent Victims of Oppression, Violence and War and lasts approximately 30 minutes. The wreath-laying ceremony will not be nationality- or faith-based and is also open to all those who would like to attend.

The memorial event seeks to honour those who died in the service of humanitarianism, to recognise our common humanitarian ideals and to celebrate the spirit that continues to inspire humanitarian action around the globe. It is intended as an occasion to enable families, friends, colleagues and organisations to pay their tribute to humanitarians past and present.
