As the crisis in Yemen reaches emergency levels, Muslim Aid with its partners on the ground, are set to provide food vouchers for people affected by the deadly conflict. Since 2015, more than 2.51 million people have been forced to flee their homes and 14.4 million have no access to food.
Already affected by political instability, much of Yemen is overwhelmed by widespread poverty, where almost 16 million people were in need of some form of humanitarian assistance before the recent conflict started.
The food vouchers will be given to over 5,400 internally displaced people, in particular, the elderly and the poorest households in Aden, Yemen. Muslim Aid continues to collaborate with its funding partner, UMCOR and this particular project is part of a series of joint or funded institutional grants received.
