Providing Food Relief to Yemen

10 March, 2020 Yemen, Emergency Response, Food Security & Nutrition
Donation : /
Over 20 million people in Yemen, two thirds of the population, are in risk of serious health conditions or even death due to severe food insecurity.

Ongoing hostilities remain the main driver of a food security situation which is constantly deteriorating. Those who are most vulnerable are IDPs who have been forced to flee the fighting as well as the communities hosting them. Specifically, the communities most at risk of starvation are in Hajjah, Al-Hodaidah, Saada and Taiz governorates. There is an ongoing economic crisis which has seriously affected those out of conflict areas – resulting high food prices, disrupted livelihoods and high levels of unemployment. Currently, the cost of a minimum survival food basket is 150 per cent higher than before the conflict.

HOW IDRF IS HELPING

The project will consist of the delivery of 2,000 food packages to IDP families in these camps. Each food package will last for one month.

OUR IMPACT

The package consists of
Wheat Flour | 20kg
Rice | 10kg
Sugar | 5kg
Milk Powder | 3kg
Biscuits 500g Canned food | 5 cans (beans)
Oil | 1L
IBC and IDRF will cover the food and nutrition needs of 2,000 IDP families utilizing the food package items as listed above. The contents may change depending on price fluctuations and availability, but enough food will be provided to families for a two-month period. In total, 11,200 people will benefit from the program for up to two months. Each family will receive one food package and this will last them for this time period.
