Examples of Effective Humanitarian Aid

We’re all about making a better world, and it’s admittedly nice to see humanitarian aid influencing the world’s population. Whether it’s about human rights, anti-war, poverty or health.

Offering travel for people who provide humanitarian aid

We are inspired every day by the efforts of humanitarian organizations around the world. We’re thrilled every time we see a successful humanitarian project in the field of peacekeeping, health, and poverty. These are all areas which are close to the heart of every possible humanitarian and humanitarian organization. Because of their compassion we are motivated to offer the best possible humanitarian travel experience

The UN peacekeeping mission that ran in Sierra Leone from 1999 to 2005 is widely considered a success. The main goal was to implement a peace agreement after the country’s devastating civil war. Ban Ki-moon declared a “successful conclusion” when he officially closed the UN offices in Freetown, back in 2014. The UN succeeded in bringing peace to the country after a decade of warfare.

“Our blue helmets disarmed more than 75 000 ex-fighters, including hundreds of child soldiers. The UN destroyed more than 42,000 weapons and 1.2 million rounds of ammunition – a potentially deadly arsenal that is now itself dead,” as told by Ban Ki-moon.

Malaria is a potentially fatal disease spread by mosquitoes. First symptoms are fever, headache, and vomiting, and if drugs are not available to treat it or if the strain is drug-resistant, the disease can worsen. Leading to anemia, lifelong learning disabilities, and even death. One of the main missions of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is trying to eradicate malaria. They partnered with the British government and committed to spending more than $4 billion over the next five years to do so.

“What we’re doing on malaria shows you can — if you have the effort, you’ve got the science, and you’re determined — really make a difference in the world,” UK Chancellor George Osborne.

The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), followed by the Sustainable Development Goals, have produced the most successful anti-poverty movement in history, said United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. The Millennium Development Goals Report 2015 found that the 15-year effort to achieve the eight aspirational goals set out in the Millennium Declaration in 2000 was largely successful across the globe. This doesn’t mean there aren’t shortfalls, but the positives outweigh the negatives by a vast margin. The data and analysis presented in the report show that with targeted interventions, sound strategies, adequate resources and political will, even those who live in the poorest of countries can see a dramatic increase in life standard and wellbeing.
