Humanitarian actions to solve the problem in Yemen continue to be done. This time, Aksi Cepat Tanggap together with Kitabisa.com distributed food packages to 978 beneficiaries in Al Mudhaffar, Al Qahira, and Taiz.

Said Mukaffiy from Global Humanity Response-ACT explains, with the assistance from five local Yemenis, the food distribution lasted from February 23rd to March 7th.

The food aid was provided for Internally Displaced People (IDP), people who lost their home, people with disabilities, voluntary teachers, families who lost their heads of family due to war, families that lost their income due to war.
