Humanitarian Heroes of Nicaragua

World Humanitarian Day is celebrated on August 19th around the world. It was on this day in 2003, 22 aid workers were killed in a bombing at the UN headquarters in Baghdad. On World Humanitarian Day we remember those who have lost their lives in humanitarian service and pay tribute to those that are making a difference through their hard work and sacrifice. These are our WFP humanitarian heroes changing lives in Nicaragua.

Overview

Nicaragua is classified by the World Bank (WB) as the second poorest country in Latin America and the Caribbean. The gross national income (GNI) per capita is US$ 1,100 (2010). 48% of the population lives on less than a US$1 a day and 76% on less US$2 daily.
