Today’s map comes from the US State Department.

What this map does not show is how horribly under-funded the humanitarian response has been. Humanitarian agencies need $1.5 billion through June to care for the basic needs of people affected by this conflict. To date, they have received $527 million, or only one third of the requirement.

The needs are immense–and getting greater by the day — but the funding is running dry.
