Emergency Relief and Development Overseas (ERDO) is supporting its local implementing partner in Taiz governate, Yemen, with a six-month humanitarian response project.

After more than eight years of war, the people in Yemen are suffering from the effects of this prolonged conflict, continued economic collapse, displacement and increased poverty, which is causing the food insecurity situation to remain at alarming levels. Despite some improvements since 2022, Yemen remains one of the most food insecure countries in the world with 781,000 people experiencing IPC Phase 4 conditions. Taiz governate has one of the highest rates of displacement in the country and thus food insecurity in this area is especially acute.

ERDO’s local implementing partner will provide unconditional food assistance for six months. Each food basket will contain 75 kg of wheat flour, 10 kg of canned beans, 8 kg of vegetable oil, 2.5 kg of sugar and 1 kg salt. In total, 535.58 metric tons of food will be provided to the targeted 925 households (6,013 individuals).
