Last 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 £24 million.
Through DEC funds, we are supporting our partner, Action Against Hunger (ACF), who has been working in Yemen since 2012, to treat malnutrition and provide healthcare to families.
We have reached more than 3,000 malnourished children, pregnant and breastfeeding mothers with nutritional support interventions/activities.
In the coming months, we will continue to fight malnutrition, aiming to reach at least 20,000 children. Our focus will also be on preventing and reducing cholera, and improving water and sanitation to reduce the risk of diarrhoea and other diseases.
With your support, we can reach even more children and families at risk of harmful diseases.
