In 2019, the YHF remained the largest CBPF worldwide with almost $169 million in contributions received. The 2019 contributions were provided by 24 donors, with 73 per cent of the contributions received from the following top five donors: The United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden. While contributions by the United Kingdom increased by 30 per cent from $39.2 million in 2018 to $59.8 million, there was a reduction in the overall amount received by the Fund compared to 2018 ($209 million) and 2017 ($175 million).
This was partly because the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), who provided $25 million each in 2018, did not make contributions in 2019 Between 2015 and 2019, the Fund received $717 million in contributions with more than 75 per cent of this amount ($542 million) provided by the top five donors, namely the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark In 2019, the YHF allocated $240 million to 54 humanitarian organizations implementing 154 life-savings projects across all sectors of need through two Standard Allocations and three Reserve Allocations. Over 11 million people (cumulatively) were targeted to receive humanitarian assistance.
