USD 5 million food-security boost for Yemen’s smallholder farmers

22/11/2021

Saudi Arabia's King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSrelief) has contributed USD 5 million to bolster FAO's emergency activities in Yemen aimed at providing critical, life-saving food security and livelihoods support.  

Through the contribution, FAO will deliver emergency assistance to more than 24 000 of the most vulnerable households (around 168 000 people) in the Governorates of Hajjah and Lahj. The project will focus on women-headed families, households with pregnant and lactating mothers, elderly and disabled people and internally displaced populations. 

Commenting on the signing of the project, FAO Representative in Yemen Dr Hussein Gadain explained how project interventions would equip households to produce a variety of nutritious food for their consumpution or for sale. "This project will not only contribute to enhancing food availability and access, but it will also ensure the nutritional value of household and community-wide food baskets", he continued. "With the generous support from KSrelief, FAO can continue to implement interventions such as these that reduce acute food insecurity while aiding the recovery of livelihoods and household incomes", he added.
