Through Feed the Forgotten, we provide people with food packs that can support a family of 5 up to a month. Our food parcels constitute wheat flour or rice (dependent on the country), pulses, cooking oil, dry milk powder, salt and sugar.

Over 828 million people will face chronic hunger this Ramadan.

Niger is a land-locked country in the Sahel region facing a food deficit. Its population of 18 million people is growing at 4 percent a year – one of the highest rates in the world.
More than 1.5 million people in Niger were affected by food insecurity in 2017. Another 1.5 million are estimated to be chronically food insecure, and millions more experience transitory shortages during the lean season. Nearly 20 percent of the population cannot meet their food needs because of factors such as inadequate agricultural production, security constraints and high demographic growth.
We are supporting a school meals programme for underprivileged children on the outskirts of Niamey, Niger.
There are over 250 children at this school, most of whom come from impoverished families. These children often come to school without any breakfast and no guarantee of food for the day.
Yemen conflict is now in the eighth year and country’s socio-economic systems remain on the edge of total collapse. The impact of the escalating conflict in 2021 and the first quarter of 2022 resulted in increased displacement and further disruption of public services, pushing humanitarian needs higher.
More than 23.4 million people (including 12.9 million children), almost three-quarters of the population, need humanitarian assistance and protection in 2022, an increase of 13 per cent from what was already an alarming figure in 2021. With more than 4.3 million internally displaced people since 2015, Yemen remains one of the largest internal displacement crises globally.”
Muntada Aid is in Yemen since 2020 providing food assistance to 150 families (Over 1000 people) at Taiz Refugee camp. Most of the people living at this camp are from the port city of Hodeidah after fighting erupted between the warring factions in 2018.
Since June 2020, we have delivered over 2 million meals at Taiz Refugee Camp.
