New Delhi: Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others? If you can’t feed a hundred people, feed just one. Make it a point to do one good act a day, that will give you immense satisfaction and will also bring small change in the World with your little contribution,” said Sandeep Marwah President of Marwah Studios and International Chamber of Media And Entertainment Industry in a session organised by AAFT University to observed World Humanitarian Day at international headquarters of Marwah Studios.
World Humanitarian Day is observed every year on 19 August. The day is observed around the world to recognize the people who work are working for a humanitarian cause, and the people who lost their lives working for humanitarian causes.
