In December, the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), of which Christian Aid is a member, launched an emergency appeal for people facing hunger in Yemen. This raised an amazing £17 million.
How we're helping
Together, DEC member charities are already reaching millions of people across the country with life-saving aid, including food and treatment for malnutrition. These funds will help that work to continue, but much more needs to be done to help those in dire need.
Through the funds raised Christian Aid will be supporting the work of Action Against Hunger (ACF), who have been working in Yemen since 2012, treating malnourished children and improving families’ access to food.
We will be supporting an ACF project helping those most at risk of malnutrition - under-fives, pregnant and breastfeeding women. The project aims to prevent acute malnutrition through targeted supplementary feeding.
