The Yemen crisis
The scale of the situation in Yemen can seem overwhelming. A country in which the world’s worst humanitarian crisis has left tens of thousands dead or injured, a collapsed healthcare system, 7.4 million suffering acute malnutrition, including over 2 million children, 80% of the population in need of humanitarian aid, and 16 million waking up hungry every morning, can leave you feeling as if nothing you do will make a difference. But it will.
Working our local teams, we have organised a major food distribution project that will feed some 28,000 Yemenis. People already have compromised immune systems, due to malnutrition having made its presence felt. But healthy, nutritious, food can help combat this situation, making people more resilient to illness and infection.
What can you do?
There are lots of ways to get involved, but one of the best ways to donate to Yemen is to set up your own fundraising page.
Start a fundraiser
The power of fundraising is that it gets your friends, family and work colleagues involved – both supporting you through donations, and spreading the word about the situation in Yemen. And some will even follow your lead and fundraise for themselves.
Yemen appeal donation
You can, of course simply donate to our Yemen appeal through the website, below.
Another effective means of supporting the people of Yemen is to follow our social media platforms - sharing our posts about the work we’re doing, and the general situation in the country.
