"The United Nations on Monday appealed for $22.2 billion in funding to cover humanitarian relief projects to aid 93 million people and 33 countries in 2017. 'The world is facing a state of humanitarian crisis not seen since the Second World War: more than 128 million people are affected by conflict, displacement, natural disasters and profound vulnerability,' the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, or OCHA, said in a statement released along with its annual report. OCHA said the $22.2 billion in funding that will 'deliver urgent relief, protection and support' to the 'most vulnerable and marginalized people' is the highest consolidated humanitarian appeal ever."
