Half of Yemen's population - more than 14 million people - are hungry and children are dying from malnutrition. Donate now to support the Disaster Emergency Committee's national emergency appeal to raise funds for this war torn and hungry country.
Almost 19 million people in Yemen – 70% of the population – are now in need of humanitarian assistance, including 10 million people who are in acute need. Malnutrition is widespread and water scarce.
Over £20 million has been raised to help save lives, including £5 million UK Aid Match funding from the Department of International Development. But more needs to be done.
The DEC brings 13 leading UK aid charities together in times of crisis: ActionAid UK, Age International, British Red Cross, CAFOD, CARE International UK, Christian Aid, Concern Worldwide, Islamic Relief Worldwide, Oxfam GB, Plan International UK, Save the Children UK, Tearfund and World Vision UK; all collectively raising money to reach those in need quickly. ActionAid UK, Plan International UK and World Vision UK are not responding in Yemen.
What your money could buy:
- £25 could provide a month’s supply of life-saving peanut paste to a malnourished child
- £60 could provide clean drinking water for two families for a month
- £100 could provide supplies to a clinic treating severely malnourished children for a week
Your support can save lives. Please give now.
