Humanitarians are under tremendous pressure to deliver more aid, more effectively than ever before. 
Today, we released a report that proposes 5 ways to ensure that we are fit for the task at hand: http://bit.ly/HEfSDGs
Thoughts? Do you agree?

Did you know that 4.73 million people have benefited from our humanitarian pooled funds for the Syria crisis? 
So far 130 life-saving projects, ranging from health to food aid, have been carried out, mostly by local NGOs. Follow the money trail here: http://ow.ly/Ug4rv

Today, nearly 60 million people (1 in every 122 people) have been forced to flee their homes. 
This is not just a stat. These are moms, dads, children - people. 
Every one of them deserves to live in peace and safety. ‪#StatsDay15

Today we mark one year since attacks on Sinjar District in #Iraq displaced more than 400,000 people from their homes. 
The vast majority of these people, like this grandfather and his orphaned grandsons, are still displaced. 
Over the past year, the UN, partners and the Government have been providing families with shelter, food, health care, and support to attend school. But a lack of funding is forcing some of these services to be scaled down or cut. We are counting on our donors to step up and support!

Since October of last year, 7 months of steady rain showered the Loreto region of #Peru ,  home to 1 million people. 
By April, more than 13,000 people had lost everything and about 163,000 were unable to work, as their sources of income were severely affected by the floods. Here's how aid groups are pulling together to help:

"Lebanon is always seen to defy gravity. It is extraordinarily resilient, but it is in no one’s interests to test this resilience further. If we reach a tipping point, Lebanon could also implode."
This week, #Lebanon‬  experienced its deadliest bombing since the civil war ended 25 years ago. At least 43 people were killed and 239 were wounded.
We spoke to the UN's Humanitarian head in Lebanon, Philippe Lazzarini, to get his take on what Lebanon needs to continue defying gravity and resisting the regional cycle of violence: http://ow.ly/UCRHo

Sudan’s Darfur region, the Horn of Africa, Myanmar, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. What's one thing these countries and regions have in common?
Combined, they just received USD $70 million from our CERF fund, which is one of the fastest and most effective ways to support rapid humanitarian response. 
Since 2006, CERF has provided more than $4.1 billion to support humanitarian operations in 95 countries and territories. It's a lifeline for millions of people. More here: http://ow.ly/QwKGM

Zubeir has just received one of life's most important necessities: Water.

Every day, 3 trucks, carrying 3,000 liters each, serve a few distribution points in Musaik, a neighbourhood of Sana'a in #Yemen .  
People like Zubeir rely on this water, because most water pumps are not able to function due to the restrictions on commercial imports and the lack of fuel. 

Find out more about the situation on the ground in Yemen, from UN humanitarian chief Stephen O’Brien's latest statement to the Security Council: http://ow.ly/QfGPh

Today, 9 July, the world's youngest nation, #SouthSudan , marks its 4th anniversary since independence. But it's a bittersweet birthday.
For the past year and a half, conflict has wracked the lives of hundreds of thousands of families: today, over 1.6 million South Sudanese are internally displaced, more than 600,000 people fled across borders to neighboring countries and 4.6 million people face severe food insecurity.
Aid groups continue to provide assistance to those who need it most, to those who want nothing more than peace and a chance at a stable future.
Here are 7 things you need to know about the ongoing conflict and the humanitarian response: http://ow.ly/PoxZN

United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs - Coordination Saves Lives
Introduction
The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs mobilizes and coordinates effective and principled humanitarian action in partnership with national and international actors.

OCHA is the part of the United Nations Secretariat responsible for bringing together humanitarian actors to ensure a coherent response to emergencies. OCHA also ensures there is a framework within which each actor can contribute to the overall response effort.

OCHA delivers its mandate through different mechanisms including the coordination of emergency relief and the organization and monitoring of humanitarian funding. Other areas of work include policy development, information management and advocacy.
