As the number of disasters all over the world rises, the lack of funds for humanitarian aid is exacerbating an already serious situation. Millions of people in Syria, Gaza, South Sudan and other conflict regions are waiting for help.
The United Nations, the Red Cross and Médecins Sans Frontières are sounding the alarm about the lack of resources. Cordaid (Caritas Netherlands) and its international emergency aid network, Caritas, are doing what they can but they are also short of resources.
