On the eve of 19th August, World Humanitarian Day Statement from Alliance 4 Empowering Partnerships

We, the International Conveners of the Alliance for Empowering Partnerships (www.a4ep.net ), haveĀ been encouraged by the commitments made to support and strengthen local and national actors who are often the first responders to disasters and crisis under Agenda for Humanity, Grand Bargain and Charter4Change.
