According to UNHCR, countries worldwide have pledged a record $1.13 billion to help those displaced due to conflict, violence, and human rights violations.
The UNHCR published the 100 million statistics in May, and agency chief Filippo Grandi called it “a record that should never have been achieved.” The number includes people escaping conflict, violence, human rights violations, and persecution.
The number has increased from about 90 million in 2021. Violence or long-lasting conflicts caused a lot of people to move around the world, especially in Ukraine, Ethiopia, Burkina Faso, Syria, and Myanmar.
Thousands of desperate migrants who wanted to get to Europe took dangerous trips across the Mediterranean, putting their lives in the hands of people traffickers.
