World Food Day (Oct. 16)

Yemen's four-year civil war has produced the worst humanitarian crisis on the planet and put thousands at risk of famine.  Instability has disrupted food production and access, leaving women and men trapped in cycles of hunger, and children facing acute malnutrition.  Staggeringly, conflict is named as the cause of acute food insecurity in 18 countries around the world.  PWS&D responds to hunger by delivering food and nutrition assistance in times of conflict or disaster.  In Yemen, PWS&D is supporting members of Canadian Foodgrains Bank to provide 1,100 hungry families with packages of flour, beans, oil, sugar and salt.  "Hope has started to appear over the horizon," says Wardan, who is relieved to be able to feed her daughters again.
