UN accumulate 18.5 billion in emergency aid in 2016

geneve - The United Nations on Monday asked the world community to 18.5 billion euros next year to meet the immediate needs of 87.6 million people in 37 countries. It seems a lot of money for humanitarian aid, said the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Antonio Guterres, but it is a pittance compared to military spending in the world and the emergency funding provided during the recent economic crises.

The UN has never known such a high target amount for humanitarian aid.
