Crisis in Yemen
The world’s biggest humanitarian crisis today
After four years of war, Yemen is home to the world’s worst humanitarian crisis today – 75 percent of all people living in Yemen, equal to 24 million people, are in urgent need of humanitarian aid due to armed conflict, displacement, disease and risk of famine.
The United Nations report that 14 million people are in acute need of adequate health care, yet only half of Yemen’s health facilities are operational while often lacking resources and supplies, and two million children are suffering from acute malnutrition.
Medair is preparing to respond to the crisis in Yemen and is in the final stages of registering itself with the Yemeni authorities. Our team is ready to provide humanitarian relief to families in need.
Medair’s activities will focus on reaching the most vulnerable by treating malnutrition of pregnant and breastfeeding mothers and children aged six months to five years, and by ensuring that vulnerable communities have the knowledge they need to keep their families safe and healthy. Through training mothers Medair aims to ensure that families know about important practices that can keep their children safe from illness and disease.
CHF 81.- will support therapeutic treatment of one malnourished child to regain acceptable weight.
