Hunger, disease and bombs are devastating the lives of millions of people as the war in Yemen continues into its fourth year. About 8.4 million people in the country are at risk of starvation.
Through the new project, 1,100 vulnerable families will receive vouchers that allow the families some sense of normalcy in how they select food for their families, and also supports local food vendors and their families. The vouchers are redeemable for salt, sugar, flour, oil and beans.
The project is led by Canadian Foodgrains Bank member ADRA Canada, and supported financially by the Government of Canada and fellow Foodgrains Bank members Development and Peace-Caritas Canada, Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada, Nazarene Compassionate Ministries, World Renew and The United Church of Canada.
