UN launches $46 billion appeal to respond to worsening crises in 2024

Image of post in post detailed view




The UN Emergency Relief Coordinator, Martin Griffiths, praised humanitarians for their efforts but stressed that global support falls short of growing needs. Despite $20 billion in donations this year, it's only a third of what's required. Griffiths warns that without more help in 2024, lives will be at stake. The UN aims to assist 181 million out of 300 million people in need across 72 countries, focusing on urgent needs. The reduction from $57 billion in 2023 reflects a concentrated effort. Griffiths highlights conflicts, the global economy, and the climate crisis as key factors driving humanitarian needs. Funding shortages in 2023 had devastating consequences, like food assistance loss in Afghanistan and inadequate living conditions in Myanmar. Griffiths emphasizes the need for funding, safety, adherence to humanitarian law, and activism to address critical humanitarian crisis.

                Griffiths' call for increased global support is a stark reminder of the urgent humanitarian needs facing 181 million people.
