Food Distribution in War Ravaged Yemen
It's been a period of tremendous turmoil for Yemen, a country whose citizens live in a state of abject poverty with patience and resilience. Political turmoil, war, attacks from Al Qaeda, a non-functioning economy, absence of productivity, virtually no diesel and no water and with 14 million people living in a state of hunger, malnutrition and virtual starvation the masses are suffering. To compound the already dire situation the country is home to hundreds of thousands of refugees from Somalia, Ethiopia, Syria and Iraq. Gift of the Givers has endeavoured to provide meals for the Fasting and food parcels to those in the provinces of Hajjah, Hodaidah and Taiz (where we have entered the besieged city of Taiz with food and medical supplies).
