This is a first of its kind event being held in 2016 to help bring the world together in taking care of humans left in stressful situations. I thought that is what The United Nations was for. At least we all can agree that we are failing in protecting the women and children and families all over the world who are suffering from getting their heads chopped off for religious purposes or being starved to death because of fanatic leaders of their own people to earthly disasters of diseases, polluted water, earthquakes and any other natural earthly disaster. We need a world humanitarian summit to help organize those who want to help and can help with the poor and suffering people of the world.
The Secretary General of the United Nations did indicate that the summit is necessary to stop the suffering going on all over the world. The summit is to take place on May 23 and 24th in Istanbul, Turkey. Rather than just throwing food and water at refugee families in stress, emphasis must be put on the leaders of the regions that have the most suffering people. They must be held accountable for the safety and well- being of the people who live in their countries. There is an agenda for humanity. The numbers are staggering and it is about time the world took note to seriously save humanity as we know it. We can no longer ignore the savagery that is taking place in this century.
Right now 125 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance. 60 million people have been forced from their homes. This carnage is going on in 37 countries. It is estimated that the United Nations needs $20 billion dollars to correct the situation. I believe that the people will willingly work hard to improve their own lives if they felt safe in their homes. The problem is with the bad leaders of regions who have stolen the countries valuables for themselves and inflicted their own religious or political beliefs on the people instead of allowing people to live freely and productively for themselves. What exactly will they discuss at this summit? Will it just be a giant fund raiser or an emporium for real change for the suffering families of the world living in poverty, starving for food and under political persecution.
The Secretary General emphasized that the summit is an opportunity to discuss and put into place various causes that have already been established. He mentioned the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the recent Paris Agreement on climate change. Yes, pollution is a subject harming all humans too. The secretary has big aspirations to discuss and solve that no human will live in conflict, no human will live in chronic poverty, no human will live in the risk of natural hazards and have to worry about rising sea levels due to rapid climate change or pollution.
