U.N. Raises Only $1.3 bln of over $4 bln Required for Yemen 2022 AID


The United Nations received only $1.3 billion in pledges on Wednesday towards a $4.27 billion aid plan this year for war-torn Yemen, where a humanitarian drive had seen funding dry up even before global attention turned to the conflict in Ukraine.

“We hoped for more and it is a disappointment we didn’t get pledges from some we thought we might hear from,” U.N. aid chief Martin Griffiths told a one-day pledging event co-hosted by Sweden and Switzerland.
