Hunger In Yemen: An Activist Spotlight
Due to war conflicts, many families in Yemen are subject to poverty, malnutrition, unemployment and several other life-threatening issues. And it seems the problem is only getting worse with time.
Many of these families now depend on support from the UN World Food Programme (WFP) for basic daily essentials. Yet with little funding, the WFP struggles to give each family enough support.
William Lambers, author and hunger advocate, has dedicated much of his time to helping those in need. Aside from writing books and articles on world hunger, Lambers decided to take action by creating a Care2 petition:
When we hear of Yemen in the news, it’s mostly about terrorism. What’s hidden are the hunger and suffering that afflict one in three Yemenis. The UN World Food Programme’s hunger-relief mission in Yemen is dramatically low on funding. Supporting this petition is one way we can change this.
In order to help, we must spread the message and demand the families of Yemen receive proper funding.
If you would like to support those in need of hunger relief, sign this petition!
