Yemeni Refugees Relief

Emergency Appeal: A humanitarian catastrophe is underway in Yemen where 18 million people are in immediate need due to the largest food scarcity emergency in the world. As of March 2017, the country only had 3 months of food stored inside (World Food Programme). Internal conflict has killed over 100,000, injured 150,000, and displaced over 350,000. With the lack of proper resources citizens are at risk of becoming the next mass refugee crisis. Thousands have fled to the African country of Djibouti via ship or plane arriving to the port city of Obock.
