UN Is Asking For $22.5 Billion To Help War, Insurgency Victims
So, with war and terrorism raging across the world, the United Nations has started appealing for money to help the victims.
The UN launched a record annual humanitarian appeal on Friday, asking donors for $22.5 billion to meet the needs of 90.1 million in 2018, mainly because of wars in Africa and the Middle East.
Needs are rising substantially in Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Libya, Somalia and Sudan, and remain exceptionally high in Nigeria, South Sudan, the Syria region and Yemen, which will remain the world’s worst humanitarian crises, the U.N. appeal document said.
In Nigeria, thousands of women, children and men in the northeast part of the country need life-saving humanitarian assistance and the UN had considerably been of great help.
Their peril is the aftermath of over 8 years of destructive activities masterminded by cut-throat Islamic terror group, Boko Haram.
Boko Haram had attacked communities, chasing people out of their homes, exposing them to hunger and other diseases.
Aid is what they need and in August, the UN set up a new fund tagged 'Nigeria Humanitarian Fund (NHF)', primarily to tackle the crisis-hit Northeast.
It said the fund has also allocated more than $10.5 million to help thousands of people.
Now, it is asking for more money to help even more vulnerable people.
