Averting famine in Yemen

Yemen is experiencing one of the worst hunger crises in the world today. Nearly 1 million people do not know where their next meal will come from and will not survive without help. More than 2 million children are malnourished, including half a million who are at imminent risk of dying if they do not receive urgent care and specialized treatment.

To avert the looming catastrophe, the World Food Programme is scaling up its food assistance in the country, but we can’t do it alone. Your shared meals will help us reach our goal of providing 1 million meals to children affected by this hunger crisis.

 
 

Helping Syrian Refugees in Lebanon

Together we are helping to provide much-needed food assistance to Syrian refugee children as well as vulnerable children in host communities in Lebanon.

The Syrian conflict has entered its seventh year; more than 11 million people have been displaced. Neighbouring Lebanon now hosts more than 1 million Syrian refugees, over 90% of whom are food-insecure. The added burden of the refugee population has increased the pressure on vulnerable Lebanese communities. This is particularly true for the villages in the Bekaa Valley, the region with the highest concentration of Syrian refugees. Together with the World Food Programme, you can help ensure that both Syrian refugee children and vulnerable Lebanese children receive the right nutrition, allowing them to reach their full mental and physical potential. You can help ensure 1,100 children have food for one full year.

Impact

Together we reached of our goal of feeding 25,000 school children in Cameroon. In the face of Boko Haram violence, you gave these children hope for a better future!

In February 2017, famine was declared across parts of South Sudan. We completed an emergency campaign sharing 1 million meals for those affected by the famine in just a little over a month!

Together we raised funds to provide school meals to 58,000 children in Malawi. The country was hit hard by the recent El Niño weather event.

The meals you shared between June and July 2016 are helping Syrian refugee children in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley. 1,500 children, many of whom live in dire conditions, will receive food support for one full year.

In spring 2016, we raised funds to support 1,400 Syrian refugee children between the ages of 3 and 4 in Beirut. Thanks to your overwhelming support, we completed this goal in less than 7 weeks!

Between January and April 2016, we raised funds to support 2,000 mothers and their babies in Homs, Syria, for a full year.

In November and December 2015, we raised sufficient funds to provide school meals to 20,000 Syrian refugee children living in camps in Jordan for a full year.
