DEC Yemen Appeal
More than 7 million people in Yemen do not know where their next meal will come from and children are dying from malnutrition.
In the midst of a civil war and after 20 months of conflict, 7 million people are on the brink of starvation, with over 3 million mothers and children acutely malnourished. More than 60% of the population is in urgent need of help. Oxfam has warned that Yemen is 'months away from running out of food'. DEC member charities are reaching millions of people across the country with lifesaving aid but much more needs to be done.
"Yemen is being slowly starved to death. First there were restrictions on imports - including much needed food - when this was partially eased the cranes in the ports were bombed, then the warehouses, then the roads and the bridges. This is not by accident - it is systematic. The country’s economy, its institutions, its ability to feed and care for its people are all on the brink of collapse."
– Mark Goldring, Oxfam GB Chief Executive
