According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (HMKO), the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sudan, and Syria will receive $20 million each. The main goal is to support people affected by conflicts and military operations in these countries, as well as internally displaced persons.

In addition, Chad will receive $15 million for refugees and other vulnerable groups. The remaining funds will be transferred to Niger ($10 million), Lebanon ($9 million) and Honduras ($6 million) to meet humanitarian needs.
