Yemen May Be Facing the Greatest Famine in Our Lifetime.

Yemen, one of the world’s poorest countries, is facing catastrophic famine — perhaps the worst in our lifetimes according to one of the UN’s Humanitarian Coordinators, Mark Lowcock. Our teams have been working in Yemen since late 2016 providing humanitarian aid and relief. We need your help. Donate now to help save Yemeni lives.

According to the UN OCHA, in 2017 everyday 150 children under the age of 5 died in Yemen due to lack of access to food and medicine. That’s nearly 50,000 dead children in under 12 months. This year, the numbers will be even worse.

Penny Appeal is supporting medical centers by providing health care and relief to the overburdened hospitals, who lack the trained staff and supplies to treat this recent influx of wounded and sick.

Because COVID19 continues to ravage vulnerable communications, we are also distributing PPE and hygiene kits and providing laboratory solutions to 4 health facilities in Amran Governorate. Additionally, we are providing two mobile medical teams in Taizz who will offer integrated nutrition and maternal & child health services. We’re also working with partners to assist children suffering from severe malnutrition, training healthcare workers to treat it, and providing supplies.

Medical aid, along with our food packages, are saving the lives of displaced Yemenis, who through no fault of their own have become casualties of a war they did not start. We cannot do it alone. We need your help.
