Published on 22 November 2013

“When I was there, of course, they're still saying they want food. The good part about it was we were giving them food. As of now, we've reached 2.66 million people.(..) They need the tools to help them rebuild their livelihoods.(..) The challenge is that Syria combined with this response is impacting other parts of the world - Somalia, Central African Republic, our programs in the Sahel. We are now beginning to face pipeline challenges because of lack of donor contributions because so much of it is being directed toward Syria and now Typhoon Haiyan response.”
