The humanitarian situation in Yemen has become arguably the most critical in the world: over 20 million people or three quarters of the population remain in need of humanitarian aid and over 2.3 million people have been displaced as a result of the conflict since March 2015.
Even in the midst of a ceasefire agreement, the damage that has been done to the country has been extensive. Yemeni infrastructure, economy, and the availability of basic social services have all been devastated as famine and water borne diseases such as cholera have spread. Emergency aid in this devastating time will continue to mean the difference between life and death for Yemenis who are living under these unimaginable conditions.
For $60, we can continue to provide food packages to families in Hodeidah who have been displaced by the civil war in Yemen. These food packages will contain staples such as lentils, rice, pasta, oil, sugar and chickpeas and will be sufficient to sustain one family of for a period of one month.
What you can do:
Your generous donations continue to be the lifeblood of our humanitarian efforts. Please donate generously to IDRF YEMEN RELIEF so we can provide these critical relief aid to some of the most vulnerable people in the world.
