Food Aid to Households with Malnourished Children and Pregnant Lactating Women in As-Silw District

Of all countries, Yemen is facing a colossal food security crisis in which millions are in jeopardy and most in need for lifesaving humanitarian assistance before top late. Yemen is a country grappling with the disastrous effects of a conflict that had already forced millions from their homes, killed and injured thousands, and exacerbated chronic humanitarian needs.

Nearly 3.3 million people – including 2.1 children are acutely malnourished, so the scale of people’s needs in Yemen dramatically exceeds the capacity of humanitarian agencies to deliver; however, their considerable and appreciated efforts are bound to sustain and save thousands of lives.

From the period of September 1st to December 31st, 2017, RDP has been implementing the ongoing project of Food Aid for Families with Young Children aiming to provide vulnerable households with sufficient access to food baskets in Al-Huriba sub district, As-Siliw district, Taizz governorate, which was funded by Sign of Hop e.V.. The project is targeting families with children under five who are suffering from severely acute malnutrition ( SAM ) or moderate acute malnutrition ( MAM ), and pregnant & lactating women ( PLW ) admitted in the CMAM program.

The project of Food Aid for Families with Young Children has targeted 137 households ( HHS ) with total achieved beneficiaries of 959 individuals disaggregated ( 384 men, 399 women, 86 boys, 90 girls ) and provided them with food baskets containing the following food items:

  • 50 Kg of white flour
  • 8 Kg of red beans
  • 4 liters of vegetable oil
  • 5 kg of sugar
  • 1 Kg of salt

Finally, the considerable effort and support of Sign of Hope e.V. helped to prevent further deterioration in households food insecurity and ensured that effective humanitarian action quickly reached those who need it most.
