December 1, 2018
Mona Relief's team has delivered today 50 families in Khulan district of Sana'a food aid baskets after conducting a survey in the Quten al-Dhbaniah village two weeks ago to assess the needs of families living in that village.
Our project which was funded by Mona Relief's online fundraising campaign and aimed to alleviating the suffering the Yemeni people who became in dire need for all kind of assistance due to the ongoing war on the country.
Three and a half years of conflict have left 22.2 million people in need of humanitarian assistance, 11.3 of which are in acute need. This increase is driven by a deterioration of the situation in key humanitarian sectors.
17.8 million people in Yemen are food insecure. Out of this, approximately 8.4 million people are severely food insecure and at risk of starvation - a worrying increase of 24 per cent. The conflict has destroyed people’s livelihoods and reduced their purchasing power, making it difficult for many Yemenis to meet minimal food needs.
