Tribute to our colleague Ali and his son Wisam

Event
International

It is with a heavy heart that Humanity & Inclusion announces the death of our colleague Ali. Ali, who was 35 years old, was killed in a heinous attack in the Middle-East on the 2nd of June, just before the start of the Eid holiday that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan. The attack that killed him also killed multiple others, including Ali’s 5-year old son Wisam.

Ali will be dearly missed by his colleagues, who will especially remember his sense of humour and calm guidance whenever they needed support.

As an experienced technical expert in the field of psycho-social support, Ali was an invaluable part of the team he worked with, and often also offered invaluable ad hoc support to other teams.

Ali leaves behind his wife and young daughter.

Humanity & Inclusion extends the deepest condolences to Ali and Wisam’s family, their friends and community, and to Ali’s colleagues in the field.

UN Security Council recognises the rights of people with disabilities in armed conflicts

For the first time ever, the United Nations Security Council has adopted a Resolution on persons with disabilities in armed conflict. This represents a significant step forward for people with disabilities, who are particularly at risk in crisis situations and often overlooked in humanitarian assistance.
