The Global Financial Crisis: Is a Global Humanitarian Crisis Next?


It’s not uncommon to hear experts describe the global financial crisis as the worst since the Great Depression of 1929, but could it lead to a global humanitarian crisis?

It’s difficult to tell whether or not this will happen; however, there are many reasons to worry about the future of human welfare around the world. In an effort to help prepare governments and organizations that typically aid those in need, it’s important to consider how serious this issue could become and what exactly you can do about it.


With the global economy still in shambles and governments all over the world struggling to prevent national economies from crashing, there are legitimate concerns that another international catastrophe could be on the horizon. There’s no shortage of candidates for what this cataclysmic event might be. Some of them are natural disasters, such as earthquakes or tsunamis,

while others are man-made disasters such as terrorist attacks. And then there are those who believe that the next major disaster will be more of an ecological crisis than an economic one. One thing is certain – with so many possibilities lurking around every corner, it’s hard to know which one could strike without warning.
