R.E.U. offers to give back to U.S. citizens in need
A group of U.N. humanitarian workers is working to help Americans who have lost their jobs to the Zika virus and who have not yet been able to get their health insurance.
The R.U., the United Nations’ umbrella agency for aid and development, has set up a “civic engagement” group in the United States to help with outreach and community engagement, a spokeswoman said Monday.
R. U. has already pledged $100 million to U .
S. projects, such as a hospitalization center in the Bronx and a flood shelter in Detroit.
The U.R. has also launched a campaign to raise awareness about Zika.
“The goal of this civic engagement is to bring awareness to the public about the importance of the U.U.’s commitment to U U. S. citizens living in countries affected by Zika, and to support them in their efforts to protect their health and the lives of their loved ones,” R. E.U.-U.S., spokeswoman Anna O’Connor said.
The group will also hold two-day meetings in the U .
R.’s headquarters in Brussels and will hold further events in Washington and Atlanta.
The nonprofit is looking for U. U .
N. employees, government officials, non-governmental organizations and civil society members who are interested in working with the group to address the need for the U.’s aid.
The charity said that the group will not coordinate any work on behalf of the R.R., which has pledged to provide $5 million for the first phase of its effort.
The two organizations are part of a global effort by the U
