Winter deals a brutal blow to Yemen
This winter came abruptly. For Yemenis facing the brutal elements of winter, time is not a luxury. IRUSA is working around the clock to turn donations into winter support. We want to ensure that the families are prepared to make it through the frigid temperatures. One of IRUSA’s most critical projects is winterization, where your support helps prepare communities to survive the biting cold.
If we act now we can provide items like food, medical aid, water, blankets, mattresses, plastic sheeting, plastic mats, shoes, jackets, hats, sweatshirts, gloves, waterproof coats, and socks. Throughout this entire winter they will live in below freezing temperatures, sometimes without any source of heat. They shouldn’t have to face this winter alone.
Since the conflict erupted in 2015, three million people have been displaced due to increased surge of violence that has caused dozens of more deaths and hundreds of injuries, including civilians.
Yemen—one of the oldest inhabited areas on Earth—is also one of the poorest and least developed countries in the Arab world, even before the conflict began. Now they face intense violence along with drought conditions and severe economic decline. 17.8 million people are food insecure, and of them, 11.3 million are considered severely malnourished, meaning they need humanitarian aid to survive. The country’s child malnutrition rates are among the highest in the world: around half of all Yemeni children under five years old are stunted.
