Yemen Update, Cholera is spreading with alarming speed

Yemen Update, Cholera is spreading with alarming speed – 22 Aug 2017

The numbers of those infected by Yemen’s cholera outbreak have been revised upwards from 300,000 to 500,000 with 5,000 new cases being reported daily*. Children make up 41% of those infected. The death toll since April is estimated at 2,000.

Elsewhere, conflict continues across the Middle East and with the ‘official’ end of the Mosul offensive in Northern Iraq, the number of refugee families needing support is phenomenal. At the same time, East Africa is struggling under one of the worst food crises the world has seen.

With the huge number of people in desperate need in so many places, ongoing support is crucial. If you are not already giving on a monthly basis would you prayerfully consider this option and call us in the office on 01 878 3200 to arrange this.

If you would like to give a gift now to help end the suffering you can do this through our website by clicking here . A gift of €38 could pay for essential hygiene kits for two families, which would be invaluable to them in their day to day lives.

Thank you again for making our work possible, Your support and your kindness is greatly appreciated.
