Every day across the world, ordinary people are being dragged into wars that are not of their making. They are #NotATarget – but when they’re running for their lives as bricks and bullets cascade around them – it feels like they are.

This #WorldHumanitarianDay, on 19th August, Islamic Relief is advocating for civilians trapped in war zones; for mothers that have held their dying children in their arms, children who dream of going to school, and doctors who struggle to save lives with insufficient resources, these are the people that are affected, and they need our help and protection.

Sign the petition at worldhumanitarianday.org to reaffirm that civilians caught in conflict are #NotATarget.
