Yemen is facing an unimaginable humanitarian catastrophe. Over 19 million people have been left hungry and homeless due to the ongoing war. A cholera outbreak has swept the country, leaving its people in desperate need of emergency aid. Thousands have lost their lives, and so many children have been orphaned in the process.
After years of war, eight million of Yemen’s estimated 28 million people are at risk of starvation. About a quarter of a million people in Al-Hudaydah, a city of 600,000, are in danger of injury or death in an urban assault. Some households lost their livelihood after their farms were damaged and it is estimated that 5200 families were displaced. GRF is working on the ground to provide food, water and shelters in Al-Hudaydah, to those most affected by the conflict. You can save a life for a displaced person who is struggling with war and starvation.
Even before the war, Yemen was one of the world’s most water-scarce countries. The conflict has of course, made this so much worse. Some 14.4 million people are struggling to find clean, safe drinking water. With a massive food and water shortage, Yemen is facing an unimaginable water and food crisis.
