Humanitarian aid fails to reach millions, Red Cross says

Millions of people living in crisis are being “left behind” by humanitarian aid organizations, the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) announced on Wednesday in a new report on the state of global aid.

Some 134 million people will need humanitarian help this year, the IFRC said in its World Disasters Report 2018, citing the UN, but only 97 million would receive aid.

In 2017, “fewer than half of the people estimated to be in need were actually known to be reached by internationally supported humanitarian assistance.”
