Siddharth Chatterjee, Chief Diplomat at the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, recently gave an extensive interview to the The Global Observatory, highlighting the work the organization is doing in the Sahel region of Africa.
“We have time to prevent another serious crisis; we must not sit back and let it happen all over again," he says. "It is a humanitarian imperative to act now to prevent the needless suffering of millions. It is not yet too late. Donors must be encouraged to respond early, avoiding a worse humanitarian situation requiring even greater financial commitment.”
“Sorry there is no space for ‘donor fatigue’ at this stage,” he says.
