Methodist Church: March 2017
Over 7 million people are at serious risk of starvation in Yemen, and millions more are severely malnourished in Somalia and South Sudan. Chronic food insecurity across these nations has led to the grim reality that a huge number of people are at serious risk of dying of hunger. On 22 February 2017, All We Can and the World Church Relationships Team of the Methodist Church in Britain, launched an urgent appeal to respond to this catastrophic situation. The £100,000 funds already raised for the appeal will be used across a number of countries including Yemen, Somalia and South Sudan. In Yemen, life-saving food will be distributed by All We Can's local partner to some of the most vulnerable families. In South Sudan and Somalia, All We Can's partner has already begun providing nutritional support for the most malnourished victims of the food crisis. In South Sudan, All We Can are responding in one of the regions flagged by the United Nations as most severely affected by the famine. In Somalia, money already raised will be supporting 16,000 people to access nutritional supplements.
The need is vast — and the Methodist Church in Britain continue to urge people to respond quickly, generously, and collectively to this catastrophic situation by supporting the appeal being managed by All We Can. £15 could provide a vulnerable individual with food aid in Yemen for a month. £45 could provide life-saving nutrition for an acutely malnourished child in South Sudan for five weeks.
