Yemen

Price: £95 Per Goat

Why Yemen?

Ongoing conflict and bombardment in Yemen is worsening an already fragile humanitarian situation. Increasing numbers of people are being displaced, building pressure on areas with already scarce resources. Out of a population of approximately 27.6 million, roughly three quarters are in need of humanitarian assistance.

Communities across Yemen are working together to keep themselves and their children safe despite facing daily struggles. A lack of access to, safe water and food and resulting malnutrition increases risk of contracting increasingly prevalent water-borne diseases such as cholera. Children in particular are feeling the impact of the conflict. With millions of children out of school, Yemen’s younger generation are lacking the security and stability of a ‘normal’ childhood.

Rohingya

Price: £110 Per Goat

Why Rohingya?

Ethnic conflicts and inter-communal violence continue to plague the mostly rural nation. Over 3.4 million people live below the poverty line on less than $1.90 (£1.40) a day. This is particularly prevalent in rural areas where 65% of the population are based. In these regions, the level of poverty is almost twice as high.

A quarter of the country’s economy is based on agriculture yet families remain malnourished. Food insecurity combined with difficult access to health facilities are placing the lives of locals in crisis. What’s more, recurring violence remains a leading cause of instability. Over a million people are internally displaced, with hundreds of thousands more seeking refuge in neighbouring countries. Affected communities are on the move and in need of humanitarian assistance, including food, shelter and medical care.

Syria

Price: £160 Per Goat

Why Syria?

After ten years, Syria remains the world’s largest refugee crisis. More than 6.6 million Syrians have been forced to flee their country since 2011 and another 6.7 million people remain internally displaced. Torrential rains, strong winds and floods have been lashing the country’s northwest region this winter, destroying tents, food supplies and leaving tens of thousands of displaced Syrian families homeless during the coldest months. More than 140,000 people have been affected and at least 25,000 tents have been destroyed. 

Approximately 92% of refugees who have fled to neighbouring countries live in rural and urban settings, with only roughly 5% living in refugee camps. However, living outside refugee camps does not necessarily mean success or stability. More than 70% of Syrian refugees are living in poverty, with limited access to basic services, education or job opportunities and few prospects of returning home.

Palestine

Price: £245 Per Goat

Why Palestine?

With a refugee population of over two million, primarily from Palestine, Syria and Iraq, Jordan is a major host of families fleeing violence and conflict. For just under a quarter of the refugees living in camps across Jordan, conditions are extremely poor. Little or no access to water and electricity increases the risk of disease and vermin infestations, jeopardising people’s health, safety and ultimately their lives. What’s more, with unemployment at around 15% there is often not enough work and many local families remain unable to support themselves.
