As part of the efforts of the Institute for Humanitarian Studies and Social Development to cultivate and domesticate the concept of humanitarianism cum volunteerism in Nigeria, the Leadership of the Institute collaborated with Abia State Government to implement a one day sensitization program of the entire state on the 19th of August 2021. The program which was implemented to commemorate the World Humanitarian Day, is aimed at cultivating and domesticating the habit of humanitarianism and volunteerism in Abia State.

The program which was a huge success had almost a thousand people from different communities of Abia State in attendance. According to the Servant Leader and Executive Governor of the state, who was ably represented by the Secretary to the state government (Hon.
