Penny Appeal is on the ground in the Al-Jaw governorate, providing vulnerable Yemenis with tents, warm winter clothing and blankets.
Winter will be crippling to poor Yemeni families living in makeshift shelters, but with your help we can keep away the cold.
Winter in Yemen
It’s hard to stay safe at home, when your home isn’t safe. The ongoing war in Yemen has devastated the country; widespread conflict and famine have left 80% of the population in need of urgent humanitarian aid. Now, as the bitter winter settles in, Yemenis are put in even more danger.
The Al-Jawf governorate is one of the most war-affected areas and is home to thousands of displaced families who have fled other parts of the country in fear for their lives. Torrential rainfall has previously caused brutal flash flooding in this area over the summer, and over 15,000 displaced families lost their tents and shelters, as well as clothing, blankets and personal belongings. Many of these families have not been able to find new shelter and are sadly living out in the open.
Penny Appeal are working on the ground to protect lives in the Al-Jawf governorate, as part of our Yemen Winter Appeal. We’re supplying families in need with tents to shelter them for the winter, as well as providing hundreds of people with warm clothing and thick winter blankets.
