Annual Report 2014

More and more people needing support in crisis countries

Bonn/Berlin, 23/06/2015. Welthungerhilfe is increasingly committed to countries affected by humanitarian crises. Syria, South Sudan, DR Congo and the Central African Republic are among the countries with the highest project funding in the last year. "We have to step into the breach more and more in places where politics has failed", says Bärbel Dieckmann, president of Welthungerhilfe. "In the complex conflicts of our time, it still requires political influence, however, in order to show the affected people the prospects for their future."

The income from donations in 2014 increased on the previous year and stood at 40.8 million Euro, of which 2.5 million Euro was from emergency aid donations. Public donors funded projects worldwide to the amount of 152.2 million Euro. The majority of the money was used for emergency aid measures. For the fight against hunger and poverty in 2014, a total of 197.7 million Euro was made available.

The year 2014 showed that Syria will become a disaster of an entire decade. Last year, Welthungerhilfe funded measures to the amount of more than 30 million Euro. As a result, for the first time, Syria is the country with the highest level of project funding. "The conditions in Syria can be compared with the rubble mountains in Germany after the Second World War", says Dieckmann. "This catastrophe will accompany us for many years to come."
