The United States has granted 264 million dollars in additional humanitarian aid to the Iraqi people.
Mark Green, director of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), said at the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly at a ministerial-level ministerial meeting on the humanitarian crisis in Iraq, chaired by the United States, the European Union, Germany and the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs “Washington has provided nearly $ 264 million additional humanitarian assistance to the Iraqi people.”
“The US government has provided nearly $ 1.7 billion in humanitarian aid to the Iraqi crisis since fiscal year 2014,” he said.
“The international community has come together to discuss needs for short-term humanitarian assistance and long-term stabilization assistance, as well as ongoing efforts to develop civil society and strengthen governance and economic management in Iraq,” he said.
“Through this new assistance, the United States provides food assistance, additional emergency food support, safe water, hygiene kits, public health development, emergency shelter, basic health care, medicines and protection of displaced Iraqis.”
“This aid will be used to help families and communities displaced by the rule of a da’id organization, some of whom return home to find themselves facing a host of challenges, including continued violence and loss of their homes and livelihoods,” Green said.
