“My family was in dire need”

in dire need

“I was displaced from my city and my family was in dire need of food,” shared Fariha,* a mother in Yemen. “We live in a difficult condition due to the war, the economic situation, and the outbreak of diseases and epidemics in our country.”

Long-standing conflict continues moving into new areas in Yemen. Rapidly rising food prices and a lack of jobs make it difficult for families to afford even basic necessities.

With the help of supporters, we are providing food, rainwater collection systems, cooking fuel, hygiene kits, and other aid for desperate Yemenis like Fariha. “When the food came . . .I cried from joy,” Fariha testified. “Every day and night we thank God that we received food.”
