The head of the World Health Organisation (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus says the world does not give equal attention to emergencies affecting black and white people.
Ghebreyesus said only a fraction of the help given to Ukraine was given to other humanitarian crises.
According to the World Health Organisation boss, assisting Ukraine is very important because it impacts the whole world, but Tigray province in Ethiopia, Yemen, Afghanistan or Syria are not receiving the same attention. He wonders if the world really gives equal attention to black and white lives.
He said the world is not treating the human race the same way, saying some are more equal than others, saying it is very difficult to accept but it’s happening.
Tedros, who is from Tigray, said the United Nations had determined that 100 trucks per day of life-saving humanitarian supplies were needed for the Ethiopian region.
