Ten years since the Muttur massacre, and we will not give up. We still feel the pain of loss when 17 dedicated team members were assassinated in Sri Lanka on August 6th, 2006 while they were working tirelessly to save lives. The crime remains unpunished.
We need to strengthen the protection of humanitarian workers and fight against impunity for these crimes, which in turn threaten access to populations in need of assistance.
Please show your support by telling us your thoughts in the comments and by sharing this post. Thank you to all of our dedicated supporters during this difficult anniversary.
