Global Humanitarian Aid Funding System Inadequate To Meet Current Global Needs, IRIN Reports

“…[The U.N. World Food Programme], which is currently trying to support more than 80 million people in 75 countries worldwide, isn’t the only over-stretched U.N. agency. … [Recent WFP cuts in several nations] reveal not just the size and number of the emergencies that WFP is tackling, but according to experts show that the current funding system is not adequate…” (Redvers, 12/16).
