United Nations: The head of the World Food Program, this year’s winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, again urged billionaires to donate just a few billion to save millions, saying Friday “leads to starvation” The number of people has jumped from 135 million to 270 million since the Kovid-19 epidemic.
“Humanity needs help right now,” said David Beasley. “This is a one-time request. … The world is at a crossroads, and we need to step up from billionaires in a way that they have never before grown. ”
The executive director of the United Nations Food Agency reported in a virtual UN press conference that between April and July the global wealth of approximately 2,200 billionaires increased by $ 2 trillion and the epidemic spread. He was referring to a study published last week by Swiss bank UBS and accounting firm PwC stating that billionaires’ global wealth rose from $ 8 trillion in early April to $ 10.2 trillion in July.
Beazley said, “I have needed a few billions since World War II to save the lives of millions and save humanity.”
“It’s not too much to ask.” Asked about the names of some billionaires, he targeted Beazley, saying: “I don’t have to hang out with that crowd.” I am hanging around people who are starving to death. “He said that the WFP is” very concerned about 2021 “because the budget did not take into account the economic decline from the Kovid-19 epidemic.
Beazley said the wealthier countries put $ 17 trillion into an economic stimulus package for their citizens to deal with coronovirus, and “that’s $ 17 trillion that’s not available for 2021.”
This year, he said, many governments reached deep into their pockets while they could afford more money to the United Nations and its agencies, but now governments are “tapping out”.
Beasley said that loans for middle and low-income countries were held or postponed until January 2021, and “it is coming due to $ 8 million in debt services”. In addition, remittances from foreign workers to families in developing countries have fallen, and. Lockdowns are adding to deteriorating economies.
“It’s a frightening situation,” he said.
Beazley said that’s why lump-sum cash for 2021 is very important for billionaires.
He said humanitarian crises in the world are worsening, with Yemen “the worst of all,” the Sahel region of Africa “undoubtedly one of the worst,” with the Congo “just horrified” and Syria deteriorating. “He said that many other countries including Nigeria, South Sudan and Ethiopia are also deteriorating.
Beasley received Kovid-19 in March and resumed the journey, including Niger in the Sahel, where it was last week when the announcement of the Nobel Peace Prize for the World Food Program shocked staff and the wider UN family. And was pleased.
The WFP chief said he went to the Sahel because “no one is bringing the world to disasters that are developing in a catastrophic way, and this is a time when we’ve all got to come together.” “So all hands on deck,” Beasley said. “If we did not get the support we needed, you would be witnessing a famine in literally several dozen countries. But if we get the support we need, we will stop the famine. ”
