On Wednesday 23rd January and Friday 25th January, we are participating in the ECats Simultaneous Pairs event in order to raise money for the UNICEF Yemen Appeal.
You may already be aware, but there are over 400,000 severely malnourished children in need of urgent lifesaving assistance in Yemen. The population in need is 22.2 million, or three quarters of Yemen’s population and the number of children in need is 11.3 million – nearly every child in Yemen. The country is on the brink of famine and children’s chances of survival are becoming slimmer by the day. We are working with partners around-the clock to save children suffering from malnutrition and disease. UNICEF is already working to reach:
Please please give as generously as you can !
This event was started in 2001, following the Tsunami in Asia, and has raised a great deal of money, for that, for the Pakistan Earthquake, where the money raised was used to build a new school, and more recently for UNICEF. In 2010 we directed the funds to the Haiti Earthquake appeal and the 2014 Appeal was for the Philippines disaster and the 2015 raised money for those affected by the Nepal Earthquake. 2016 also raised funds for Syrian refugee children.
