As you may have heard through the general media channels the situation in Yemen has escalated further and the UN have estimated that 22 million people, three-quarters of the population are in urgent need of humanitarian aid and protection. Our own sources on the ground estimate that 8.4 million are at risk of starvation
We have faith based partners who are ready to respond on the ground in the densely populated Governorate of Ibb and as an Irish Christian response to the crisis we want to stand with the people of Yemen and help those in greatest need.
To date Tearfund Ireland has helped alleviate some of the suffering caused by the cholera outbreak through the provision of safe drinking water but now our concern has moved to alleviating hunger.
