The Covid-19 pandemic has interacted with new, ongoing and protracted conflicts, exacerbating existing inequalities and protection concerns, and contributing to dramatically escalating humanitarian needs including displacement, famine, food insecurity and desperate medical shortfalls.
Save the Children and Action Against Hunger urge the UK to reverse these cuts without delay.
Yesterday’s statement and today’s International Development Committee session on UK official development assistance (ODA) spend have provided none of the clarity we desperately need.
The UK Government has cut aid to Syria, which recently marked ten years of conflict, by almost a third.
Fires in camps in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, have highlighted the continued need for emergency humanitarian assistance for Rohingya refugee communities living there.
Communities are still in need of urgent humanitarian assistance a decade on from the start of the conflict in the country.
International and national non-governmental organisations (NGOs) working in South Sudan call on the UK Government to reconsider urgently the reported 59% budget cuts to vital international aid.
The 2021 aid budget earmarked for nutrition in developing countries is only 36% of that in 2019, even before cuts are made to reduce aid spending to 0.5% of Gross National Income.
The UK government has almost halved the amount pledged to support the UN's response in Yemen.
A wave of violence has broken out across the Central African Republic following disputed elections on 27 December 2020.
Action Against Hunger is extremely concerned about the humanitarian consequences of the United States designating Ansar Allah (known as the ‘Houthis’) in Yemen as a Foreign Terrorist Organisation (FTO). We firmly believe this designation will have a devastating impact on a civilian population already living in the world’s worst humanitarian disaster and, in many cases, on the brink of famine.
We’re delighted to announce a renewed commitment from our strategic partner, the innocent foundation.
