It's quite simple: we can't help people in need if we can't reach them. 
Here's why timely and unhindered humanitarian access is so crucial > http://bit.ly/17Rva4A

Imagine having to live underground to protect yourself from constant shelling: half a million Ukrainians are going through that as we write. Another million have fled their homes in fear.

Aid groups are doing their best to respond to the most pressing needs in ‪#‎Ukraine‬, but they need support: http://bit.ly/1FolVDT

Warm clothes, condensed milk, water, medical and hygiene kits...
Four trucks just delivered 62 METRIC TONS OF RELIEF to #Donetsk, in #Ukraine, to alleviate the suffering of those caught in the fighting.

This convoy was possible thanks to  +United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), +UNICEF and the +World Health Organization (WHO) , and it's only the tip of the iceberg: the #UN  and its partners continue to work tirelessly to scale up aid for the 5 million women, children and men affected by the ‪#‎UkraineCrisis‬.

“They killed my daughter, burned houses, shops, and killed a lot of people. They’re raping people, even old women.”

Madeline Denam is 72 and she's from a village called Bimbi, in the Central African Republic. Last month, she had to run away with her three grandchildren, leaving everything behind. She walked all day to reach safety in a camp for civilians displaced by violence in Batangafo.

The ‪#‎CARcrisis‬ has left over half of the country's population – 2.7 million people – in need of life-saving assistance. THEY MUST NOT BE FORGOTTEN > unocha.org/car

“My village has disappeared.”

Suzanne Kourma has lived through a lot of atrocities in her 80 years in the Central African Republic (CAR). But none match the violence she has witnessed over the past 2 years. Earlier this month, she was forced to flee her village because of fighting. Her husband was killed and she broke her leg before finding refuge at a camp in Batangafo, about 330 kilometers (204 miles) north of the capital, Bangui.

You would think someone like the U.N. could do something about all this bad on the world, instead of posting about it!

In the Middle East and in North Africa, millions of women, children and men, from Libya to Palestine, from Yemen to Syria and Iraq, have had their lives completely overturned by violence.

To address these harrowing needs, we must ‪#‎ReShapeAid‬ > http://bit.ly/1BRD6k3

More than 20 million people need life-saving help in the ‪#‎Sahel‬ region. Such numbers are hard to grasp.
