Yemen Emergency Appeal

In its recent report, the United Nations International Children's Fund or UNICEF described the ongoing conflict in Yemen as

"A living hell
for children."

According to the United Nations the ongoing coronavirus pandemic is causing a near-total collapse of the health system in Yemen.

Even before the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, Yemen was already in grip of a famine that was going to have a direct impact on 14 million people that is almost half of country’s population. COVID-19 has made the situation worse.

Yemen is one of the poorest countries in the Middle East. The ongoing civil war has made the situation even worse. It is one of the lowest-ranking countries on the Human Development Index and is 177th out of 189 countries graded.

It has a population of 30.5 million people and of that 20.1 million people face hunger in the absence of food assistance.

Despite ongoing humanitarian assistance

15.9 million people wake up hungry every day and 14.4 million people need immediate assistance to sustain or save their lives. Malnutrition among women and children is particularly shocking. Over 2 million children are currently suffering from acute malnutrition and over 360,000 are at risk of dying without proper treatment.

Food
insecurity
in Yemen

Yemen imports 90% of the food, but the ongoing conflict has disrupted the supply chains and that is causing serious situation in the country.

The country need almost $3 billion worth of humanitarian assistance, but so far it has only managed half of it. With the coronavirus pandemic, the situation is only getting worse. The Yemeni people will need all the support we can offer.

What we are doing

Muntada Aid has started a long-term food programme in 14 governorates providing the food provisions to families and internally displaced people (IDPs) who are in desperate need of help.

Millions of children are at the brink of starvation in Yemen. The UNICEF is estimates that another 30,000 children “could develop life-threatening severe acute malnutrition over the next six months.” There are over 2.4 million children in Yemen suffering from malnutrition. Many of these children are at a serious risk and need urgent support.
