Stop violence against aid workers!
Petition Background (Preamble):
The threats are numerous and range from conflict, terrorism, kidnappings, assaults, travel accidents, exposure to disease, and many others. In the last 4 years over 800 aid workers were victims of security incidents.
The perceived politicization of aid has motivated individuals or groups to use violence and specifically target those who seek to help vulnerable populations.
Millions of vulnerable people rely on local, national or international assistance for their survival.
Those who seek to provide that assistance must have sustainable, safe and secure access in order to alleviate suffering.
The Stop violence against aid workers! petition to Global mainstream media and State donors was written by Christopher Finucane and is in the category Human Rights at GoPetition. Contact author here. Petition tags: ngo, safety, security, humanitarian, development, aid, aid worker
