Yemen Crisis Appeal
By Nicole G
Your child wakes up sick and hungry, you don’t know where your next meal will come from and your hospital is running out of supplies. This is the reality for millions of people in Yemen, where a civil war has torn the country apart.
It’s easy to feel helpless in the face of this horror. But humanitarian aid organisations are helping families struck by a catastrophic food crisis and ongoing war. They’re running emergency clinics, providing treatment for malnutrition and getting clean water and food to people affected. They’re helping Yemenis survive.
Please can you chip in a few pounds to make sure that staff on the ground have the resources they need to save lives? Click here to donate to the Disasters Emergency Committee’s (DEC) Yemen appeal:
This crisis in Yemen doesn’t always make the headlines, so it’s easy to forget about what’s happening there. But the organisations on the ground have the skills and experience to deal with a crisis like this. Now they urgently need the money to do it – and that’s where we can come in.
£25 could provide a month’s supply of life-saving peanut paste to a malnourished child
£60 could provide clean drinking water for two families for a month
£100 could provide supplies to a clinic treating severely malnourished children for a week
Supporting emergency appeals can feel a bit different to the rest of what we do together. But time and again, we’ve proved that 38 Degrees members are first in line to support people in crisis, wherever they are in the world. In 2011, hundreds of us chipped in to help famine relief in East Africa. Then in 2013, we worked together to raise nearly half a million pounds to support rescue work after Typhoon Haiyan devastated the Philippines. In 2014, we helped the international effort to stop the spread of Ebola in West Africa.
Let’s do what we can for the people in Yemen.
