We are in the midst of one of the greatest humanitarian crises of our lifetime.
From 2008 to 2014, 111 countries out of a total of 207 (54 percent of the world) had deteriorated in levels of peace and more nations are drifting away from stability.
According to UN data, disasters affect more than 200 million people each year. A total of 574 disasters were reported in 2015 alone, 20 percent of which occurred in Africa, affecting 31 million.
Sixty-five million people are either displaced or have become refugees — the highest figure ever recorded since World War II.
Two hundred and fifty million children are trapped in conflicts worldwide.
