Challenge

The UN reports 10 million people are one step away from famine and and an additional 7 million are malnourished. The COVID19 pandemic will have a devastating impact "five years of fighting have degraded the health infrastructure, exhausted people's immune systems and increased acute vulnerabilities." Mark Lowcock, UN Humanitarian Coordinator, warns COVID-19 "could spread faster, more widely and with deadlier consequences than in many other countries."

Solution

People with co morbid conditions tend to have severe morbidity and mortality due to COVID-19. Securing food for families will help reduce malnutrition and the resulting infections that impacts people's immune systems. This in turn will reduce the severity of COVID-19 and save lives.

Long-Term Impact

Our services provide families in need live savings services. Food baskets reduce the risk of malnutrition; the water filters protect against diarrheal diseases including cholera; school support equips children in Yemen with the skills they need to make a better future for themselves and to rebuild their country when peace returns. Sponsoring families with orphans ensure that they don't become homeless.
