Limited funds for disaster relief in Latin America, Caribbean: UN
United Nations, Dec 12 (Prensa Latina) The UN has said that there are inadequate funds to carry out disaster relief works in Latin America and the Caribbean where thousands of people have died in cyclones this year.
Countries such as Mexico, Panama and Cuba, which in the past had not requested for financial aid for disaster relief, have now appealed for help. This shows the seriousness of the situation, the UN office for Coordination of Humanitarian Aid (OCHA) said in a statement Thursday.
At least 7,000 people have been killed and around 18,000 affected in cyclones in the region this year, the OCHA said. Donors have contributed only 32 percent of the total amount requested by the UN, it said.
