Currently, 1.5 billion people live under the threat of violence in more than 50 global conflict zones. Just fifteen years ago, approximately 80% of humanitarian aid went to helping the victims of natural disasters, but today that ratio is reversed, with 80% of aid going to meet the needs of victims of violent conflict. The result is an uptick in wars and violence that have triggered the worst displacement and refugee crisis ever recorded, displacing 68.5 million people from their homes. Violent conflict costs the world an estimated $14.76 trillion annually.
This is a time when peacebuilding is needed most—and your generous contribution helps us put peacebuilding at the forefront of global solutions to conflict and violence.
