CWR Responding to Yemen’s ‘Unprecedented Humanitarian Needs’

CHICAGO, IL (January 8, 2019) – Covenant World Relief is encouraging donations to address the crisis in Yemen, which has led to “unprecedented humanitarian needs,” according to the United Nations.

There are 22 million people in need of humanitarian aid, and a cholera outbreak has affected 1.1 million people.

A CWR partner is providing emergency provisions of clean drinking water as well as health and hygiene training. For security reasons, we are not identifying the partner.

Donations can be made to the general disaster fund. Please note “Yemen” in the honor/memorial box.
