Indeed, since Aylan's death six months ago, countless more innocents – men, women and children – have died completely preventable deaths.It is true that we are faced with major humanitarian crises, unlike anything since the last world war. Today, 125 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance around the globe.Something has to be done and Turkey is leading the way, not only in terms of setting an example, but also in working to galvanize the international community toward action.Today, while a major humanitarian donor, Turkey also hosts the largest refugee population – more than 3 million – in the world. The World Humanitarian Summit will provide a vital platform to address the challenges burdening the humanitarian system.Istanbul is an opportunity to step up and shoulder that responsibility. We are calling on all leaders of the world to come to Istanbul for the U.N. Humanitarian Summit and to work with us to find solutions for those who desperately need humanitarian assistance.
