US President Donald Trump on Saturday pledged $ 639 million to fund humanitarian programs, including $ 331 million to help feed the hungry in four countries - Somalia, South Sudan, Nigeria and Yemen.
David Bisley, executive director of the UN World Food Program (WFP), told Reuters that Trump's pledge came during a working session of the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, and a "gift" to the program.
"We are facing the worst humanitarian crisis since the Second World War," said Paisley, a Republican and former South Carolina governor nominated by Trump to head the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting global hunger.
Additional funding was about a third of what WFP estimated was needed this year to meet urgent food needs in the four countries facing famine and elsewhere.
The program estimates that 109 million people worldwide will need food assistance this year, up from 80 million last year, said Beesley, adding that the crisis in 10 of the 13 worst-hit areas arose from "man-made" wars and crises.
"We see that unless we receive the funding we need immediately, between 400 and 600,000 children will die in the next four months," he said.
Trump's announcement came after his administration proposed sharp cuts in funding for the State Department and other humanitarian missions as part of its "America First" policy.
Bisley said his agency worked hard with the White House and the US government to provide funding, but Trump also insisted that other countries increase their contributions.
A spokesman for the World Food Program said Germany had recently pledged an additional 200 million euros for food aid.
The United States is the largest donor to the World Food Program for a long time.
