The worldwide need for humanitarian aid is huge. There are numerous humanitarian crises that are ongoing or worsening - whether in conflict situations or due to extreme weather events and natural disasters.
However, not all crises are perceived equally by the public, and not all affected countries or regions are supported according to their humanitarian needs. Since a long time there is a large gap between demand and financing. This circumstance, however, has a much greater impact on humanitarian crises that are less in the focus of the media than on those on which international attention is focused, at least temporarily. Less noticed crises threaten to become forgotten crises.
