UN says world faces worst humanitarian crisis since 1945 with tens of millions starving

 

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-03-11/un-says-world-faces-largest-humanitarian-crisis-since-1945/8346048

 

Stephen O'Brien told the UN Security Council on Friday that "without collective and coordinated global efforts, people will simply starve to death" and "many more will suffer and die from disease".

He urged an immediate injection of funds for Yemen, South Sudan, Somalia and northeast Nigeria plus safe and unimpeded access for humanitarian aid "to avert a catastrophe", describing the current situation as a "critical point" in history...

 

The UN humanitarian chief also visited South Sudan, the world's newest nation which has been ravaged by a three-year civil war, and said "the situation is worse than it has ever been".

"The famine in South Sudan is man-made," he said.

 

Natural disasters like drought and flooding causing famine is bad enough, but when it is man-made, well, that is just awful!! What a reprehensible system.
