During a meeting with various members of the United Nations held in Kuwait, the agency was able to get donations of $ 2,400 million for those affected by the war in Syria.
The United Nations needs around $ 6,500 billion this year to take care of nearly 13.4 million Syrians citizens displaced inside and outside their country. Similarly, participants agreed that this conflict is a threat to regional stability and that the provided aid saves lives momentarily but does not solve the crisis.
In turn, Ban Ki-Moon, a Secretary General of the United Nations said that “war threatens the stability and progress in the development of the entire region.”
Kuwait leads the contributions with $ 500 million, followed by the U.S. with $ 380 and Saudi Arabia with $ 250. Of the $ 1,540 million expected from some forty countries, at the moment the UN has only received 70% of the value, which was used to help 6.8 million Syrians.
