International Community Must Work Together To Address Humanitarian Crises

Huffington Post: The Forgotten Crises
Samuel A. Worthington, CEO of InterAction

“…We must not ignore people in Africa who are forced to flee from their homes due to violence and conflict. … [W]e must work to immediately alleviate suffering and build communities that are resilient to multiple shocks. … The world must step up to address crises that are preventing individuals everywhere from living up to their full potential. By joining forces, governments, U.N. agencies, international NGOs, local civil society organizations, and private businesses can collectively aide affected populations while building stronger, more resilient communities where people need not flee. As we prepare for the World Humanitarian Summit, it is critical that we bring attention to the world’s crises that are so often forgotten and ignored” (4/12).
