Help five families
In 2021, WFP aims to provide 13 million people with emergency food and nutrition assistance with 100% rations across Yemen. The war caused widespread hunger and poverty in Yemen, leaving millions of children malnourished. Currently, our teams are on the ground in Yemen providing families with life-saving food parcels that will help them overcome the famine that has spread through the country. We will work closely with families to support them to feed their children and ultimately become financially independent. Your gift helps us to establish primary health care programs, water and sanitation programs, and makes families more resilient against future disaster or conflict situations.
One child dies every ten minutes from treatable diseases including cholera and diphtheria – children need more than paracetamol and plasters to survive. Families are down to one meal a day as food gets harder to find and more expensive. 1.8 million children under the age of five are acutely malnourished and are therefore at a greater risk of death. Our 100% Donation Policy means that every penny you donate is used in the delivery of humanitarian projects and directly related costs. Your gift will support the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement to provide urgent and ongoing humanitarian assistance in the occupied Palestinian territories.
