IOM Seeks US$ 177 Million for Urgent Humanitarian Needs

IOM is appealing for US$177 million to address the vital needs of migrants and internally displaced victims of conflict and natural disasters around the world.

The call for funding is part of the United Nations Consolidated Appeals Process (CAP) - a process designed to ensure all needs and requirements are fully coordinated with humanitarian partners.

IOM responds to humanitarian crises, whether natural or man‐made, by providing transportation to those in need, including extremely vulnerable people and third-country nationals.

It also provides transitional shelter, non-food relief items, health and livelihood assistance, and serves the lead agency for camp coordination and camp management (CCCM) in natural disasters.

In the aftermath of crises, IOM helps strengthen governments' capacity to tackle migration‐related issues that often arise from emergency situations, such as human trafficking and irregular migration.

The IOM appeal for US$ 177 million is part of the annual mid-year review of all humanitarian appeals organized and led by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Activities (UN OHCA) in New York.

The funding will go towards humanitarian assistance projects in 16 countries including Afghanistan, Chad, Côte d'Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Haiti, Kenya, Liberia, Mali, Niger, Philippines, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Yemen and Zimbabwe.
