[size=20pt]World Humanitarian Day: Chimamanda To Deliver Speech at United Nations.[/size]

Popular Writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie will be delivering a keynote address to the United Nations world body on Friday, August 19, 2016 as part of a series of events marking the occasion of World Humanitarian Day.


This event is scheduled to take place in the United Nations General Assembly Hall in New York. Secretary General Ban Ki Moon will be attendance, in addition to about 1,900 people from the international community.


The theme of the World Humanitarian Day is “One Humanity” and is intended to speak to the fact that our world is confronting massive, unprecedented human suffering.

According to the UN, 130 million people are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance and some 60 million people have been forced to flee their homes.

Ms. Adichie was invited to speak in order to harness her gift of giving voice to diverse stories- to call the world to an increased understanding of our equal humanity in the face of the challenges of a protracted humanitarian crisis.
