Preparing Aid for Yemen

Gift of the Givers prepares to send container loads of aid to Yemen where more than 400 000 children are severely malnourished. The country presently ranks as among the top 6 most hungry countries in the world. The ongoing war has virtually destroyed the entire economy of the country.

Rice, oil, tinned food, sugar, beans, baby milk powder, biscuits, medical supplies and detergents are the items we intend sending. Water is also a huge need as Yemen ranks as among the top four water scarce countries in the world. We have two water trucks that have delivered 2.1 million litres of water in the last few months. We intend purchasing a third truck at 30k USD.

Cash contributions into Gift of the Givers, Standard Bank, Pietermaritzburg, Account number 052278611, Branch Code 057525. Details Imtiaz Sooliman 0832364029.
