Duty of Care refers to the obligation of humanitarian organizations to their humanitarian workers and volunteers. They must do everything in their power to maintain the well-being, security, and safety of humanitarians when they are supplying aid and offering the much-needed help in vulnerable locations. In other words, Duty of Care is a legal obligation which is imposed on an individual requiring adherence to a standard of reasonable care while performing any acts that could foreseeably harm others. Breaching a Duty of Care may make you subject to liability. That is what makes it extremely important.
