"A right delayed is a right denied."

In a world infested with anger, hatred and violence, there has been a significant increase in the number of deliberate acts of violence against workers, irrespective of caste, religion or sex. The international community must reverse the loss of respect for international humanitarian law and the resulting increase of attacks on those workers providing life saving aid on the frontline of world crises. The death toll among workers, and the inability to reach people with nutrition, shelter and healthcare, must not be accepted as the condition of working in conflict environment. Let us not accept, but let us stop this growing worldwide deficit of humanity.
