“If everyone who will need humanitarian aid next year lived in one country, it would be the fifth largest nation in the world,” said UN humanitarian chief Mark Lowcock. “The pandemic is a massacre in the most fragile countries,” he added.
The UN has established 34 for 56 countries by 2021, with the goal of helping 160 million of what it predicts will be 235 million of the most vulnerable people facing hunger, conflict and the impacts of climate change and the coronavirus pandemic.
“We always aim to reach about two-thirds of those in need because others, for example the Red Cross, will try to fill the remaining gap,” explained Lowcock.
Countries donated a record $17 billion to collective humanitarian response in 2020, reaching 70 percent of those in need — an increase of 6 percent compared to 2019, according to the report.
But the UN warned that this is less than half of the $35 billion needed to curb widespread hunger, fight poverty and keep children in schools, and called for financial contributions from rich countries.”
Now the rich world can see the light at the end of the tunnel,” Lowcock said in a statement. “The same is not true in the poorest countries.”The Childbirth Allowance, also known as the “Baby Bonus”, is the economic contribution that the State offers to families who have or adopt a child.
