#Sharehumanity with Islamic Relief USA on World Humanitarian Day

Nada Shawish is communications specialist at Islamic Relief USA.

19 August 2015 – There’s nothing connecting humanitarians and the world better than social media today—And on World Humanitarian Day the United Nations has launched a call to people around the world to share stories of humanitarian heroism on their social media feeds. At Islamic Relief USA, my colleagues and I are dedicating our feeds to humanitarian heroes for World Humanitarian Day—Are you?

In 2015 nearly 78 million people are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance @islamicrelief #Dosomething #sharehumanity

Islamic Relief USA humanitarians are tirelessly working in some of the most dangerous places in the world to reach people who need help and today, we’re sharing some of their stories with you to get the conversation started.

As Muslims, part of our duty on Earth is to encourage humanitarian action:

Have you seen him who doesn’t believe? He who drives away the orphan and doesn’t urge the feeding of the needy @islamicrelief #sharehumanity

The best humanitarian example to follow is our Prophet Muhammad, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him:

Allah on the best humanitarian, our Prophet: “And in no way have We sent you except as a mercy to the worlds” @islamicrelief #sharehumanity
