When tragedy strikes, time and quick response are the only two key factors that help reduce the impact of the aftermath. The year of 2016 was not kind to the poor people around the world, where an estimated 146 million people in 47 countries were in need of humanitarian assistance. About quarter of those affected by these crises were located in three countries: Syria, Yemen and Iraq. By the end of 2016, there were 65 million people forced into displacement due to internal conflicts and wars, which makes it the highest recorded total rate.
According to the Centre for the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED), there were 337 million people affected by disasters associated with natural hazards. While the ongoing wars and conflicts in the Middle East region has resulted in the displacement of more than 65.9 million people, most of whom were repeatedly displaced. NGO’s play a major role in disaster management, and the quicker they act, the more people they save. However, the magnitude of crisis usually exceeds the expected numbers which makes your contribution pivotal for the process of saving millions of lives.
