We stand at a critical point in our history. Already at the beginning of the year, we are facing the largest humanitarian crisis since the creation of the United Nations. Now, more than 20 million people across four countries face starvation and famine. Without collective and coordinated global efforts, people will simply starve to death.
All four countries have one thing in common, conflict. This means that we, you, have the possibility to prevent and end further misery and suffering. The UN and it's partners are ready to scale up, but we need the access and the funds to do more. It is all preventable.
It is possible to avert this crisis, to avert these famines, to avert these looming human catastrophes.
