The work of an aid worker is rewarding, but oftentimes comes with immense risk. Just this year alone, more than 200 humanitarians have been subjected to attacks in different parts of the globe.
There are tools that help ensure the safety of aid workers, as well as keep them informed of the latest humanitarian-related development. They can even be downloaded online.
The Aid Worker Safety app, for instance, as its name suggests, comes with safety and security guidelines for humanitarians. The United Nations Humanitarian Kiosk, meanwhile, gives a snapshot of the humanitarian situation in a particular location.
