This While we’re enjoying the excitement and the Preloved advent calendar, Preloved knows it’s important to think of those less fortunate at this time of year. So, as always, we’re going to be supporting a number of charities throughout the month to encourage our members to give back during December.
So, we’re featuring one charity a week to ask you to consider donating on behalf of a friend or family member as a gift this year, instead of splashing out on gifts.
This week’s focus is Oxfam and their Yemen Appeal
Oxfam’s Yemen Crisis Appeal
Continuing conflict, airstrikes and restrictions on imports have left 14 million people facing famine in Yemen. Nearly half of all children aged between six months and five years are chronically malnourished.
Oxfam has reached more than three million people with lifesaving essentials, like clean water and cash to buy food – but the military onslaught around the port city of Hudaydah is putting yet more children, women and men at risk.
“Famine is imminent. It could happen any time… People have [sold] all their belongings and they have nothing more to sell in order to get food. There are no job opportunities.” Ibrahim Alwazir, Oxfam Communications Coordinator in Yemen
