UN seeks $22.5bn for war, humanitarian crises victims
The UN has launched a record appeal for $22.5bn to help victims of conflict and humanitarian crises around the world. From South Sudan to Syria and from Afghanistan to the refugees from Myanmar, conflict is the cause of the human suffering. And in most cases these are conflicts with no end in sight. The UN says more than 135 million people across the world need aid. In terms of the numbers affected, Yemen is the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
