The funds have supported in more than 42 countries so far.
As of 4 June, $1.18 billion – 18 per cent of what’s required – has been recorded for the Global Humanitarian Response Plan (GHRP), with another $978.2 million recorded towards other activities, bringing the total received for the COVID-19 humanitarian response to $2.14 billion.
The next update of the GHRP is expected in mid-July.
Funding the plan will save lives, equip humanitarian agencies and non-governmental organizations with what they need to treat the sick, and help secure a logistical backbone to allow humanitarian supplies and workers to continue reaching those in need.
