Feeding Yemen is a student-led initiative that aims to spread awareness and raise funds for vulnerable children suffering from the consequences of the famine. Our goal is to raise $15,000 for Yemen, a country that is currently facing the largest humanitarian and hunger crisis in the world. For every dollar you donate, you will be providing food for a child, who would have likely died from starvation or other preventable causes otherwise.
Here are some numbers:
80% of Yemenis are in need of humanitarian aid.
2 in 3 Yemenis can't afford to purchase food and 1 in 2 are on the brink of starvation.
Around 2 million children under 5 require treatment for acute malnutrition.
As little as $60.00 USD would be able to provide a month's worth of food for a family of 5-7.
Yemen Aid is a New York based organization that provides humanitarian assistance and resources to Yemeni people, regardless of race, political affiliation, ancestry or religion while utilizing 100% of your donation towards food relief. They have been able to achieve this as their management team is entirely comprised of volunteers.
We hope you join us in support of the Yemeni children. Follow us on Instagram (@feedingyemen) to stay up-to-date with our upcoming fundraisers, and check out our website (feedingyemen.info) for a compilation of educational resources. Thank you for your time and take care!
