- Women and the Global Ceasefire Efforts

- World Health Organization

- Resident Coordinators

Tomorrow, the Secretary-General will be addressing the opening of a high-level virtual pledging event for the humanitarian crisis in Yemen.  Something that we have been flagging here almost on a daily basis That event is co-hosted by the United Nations and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It will start at 9:00am New York time and you will be able to watch it on the un web tv platform. Twenty-four million people – that’s 80 per cent of the population in Yemen – need aid and protection. The humanitarian operation assists more than 10 million people every month. However, without additional funding, life-saving programmes will soon be forced to reduce or even close in what is the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. 

A press conference will follow the event at 1:10pm, New York time. Media questions should be submitted in advance and up until two hours before the closing of the event on WhatsApp or by email to our OCHA media colleagues.  

Yacoub El-Hillo, the Humanitarian Coordinator for Libya, said over the weekend that he was shocked by the horrific reports about Wednesday’s shooting at a smuggling warehouse in Mezda, killing 30 migrants and injuring 11 others.  

He said that authorities with influence on the ground in the area where this incident took place have the responsibility to ensure that human smugglers and traffickers are not allowed to continue their inhuman and degrading acts.  Such heinous and merciless crimes against helpless individuals should be investigated immediately and those responsible have to be brought to justice. 

The Secretary-General notes that the relative calm that characterized election day continues to prevail in Burundi.

He reiterates his call to all parties to ensure that their words and actions promote peace and harmony among all Burundians. The Secretary-General emphasizes that any electoral dispute should be addressed through established legal and constitutional channels under Burundi law.

The Secretary-General reiterates the support of the United Nations to the people and Government of Burundi.

The United Nations are the biggest corrupted and hypocrete organization throughout the history. While they legalize Yemen war and provide green light to Saudi and UAE to eliminate Yemenis from their own land, they weep crocodile tears about the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. They used Yemen as an opportunity to collect as more as money and spend it in their ambiguous purchases and staffs, meanwhile there is nothing reach to Yemenis

humanitarian crisis in Syria,heat is coming,and spike in syrian lira verses dollar,since ceasar law is on,and that s good first step, an urgent need to support triples all NGO S Working to be able to pay Syrians with dollar,and this currency does not fell into assad benefit nor corrupted militias, founding free Syrians bank would be best solution near borders,and a pressure to russia to stop arrests and start empty dongeons and detain centrs and close them by a schedul definte by human rights 5 commitee and if not russia should be sanctioned.

I am baffled that this event has so little media coverage and so little views. The crisis in Yemen is definitely the most severe humanitarian crisis in the world right now, not Corona or the US protests. My mind is with you Yemen, from the Netherlands.

Sir..Is it correct to assume as there are three or more pandemics going on that the measures for Covid will deal with all of them. For instance ..there is no chance Ebola will travel and Aids will continue to spread? How many pandemics are we dealing with in Canada then?
