Global Hunger Crisis

Woman in YemenERDO is rushing food to families experiencing extreme hunger in Yemen and Democratic Republic of Congo. Read on for details about a special match from the Canadian Government.

Globally, there are now over 190 million people experiencing crisis levels of hunger. Right now, ERDO is bringing emergency food to families in Yemen and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) - two of the most extreme humanitarian emergencies in the world. In DRC, over 27 million people are struggling to find food each day. Years of conflict have resulted in an extreme food scarcity. In Yemen, millions of people, including small children, are at risk of starvation from famine.

ERDO and our partners in Yemen and DRC are actively feeding families each month, but we need to do more. Time is running out for families experiencing daily hunger.

In Yemen, ERDO’s local partners are bringing monthly food baskets to 1,225 families, serving over 9,000 people. These baskets contain flour, beans, vegetable oil and salt. The families we are working with live on the edge of an active conflict zone and are in desperate need. Your donation of any amount will save lives.

Brothers in DRCIn DRC, our local partners are distributing monthly food baskets to 1,180 families. Emergency food is given out alongside ministry programs, like trauma counselling and education programs for children.

When you give a food donation, every dollar donated will be matched 4x by the Canadian government through our membership in Canadian Foodgrains Bank!

This means that a gift of $25 becomes $125 in food, $100 brings $500 in food and $2,000 provides $10,000 of emergency food.

Thank you for a donation of any amount.
