UN seeks record $22.5 billion in humanitarian aid for 2018

United Nations

The United Nations is appealing for a record 22.5 billion Dollar to provide humanitarian assistance to 91 million victims of conflict and natural disasters in 2018.

According to Mark Lowcock, the UN undersecretary-general for humanitarian affairs and emergency relief coordinator, the money is to be used to give tens of millions of the world’s most vulnerable people food, shelter, health care, emergency education, protection and other essential relief next year.

Lowcock said, the money will also be used to provide aid to victims of typhoons, hurricanes and other natural disasters. But, he said, Yemen, Syria and Democratic Republic of Congo – homes of the world’s three biggest crises – will receive most of the aid.
