Yemen is the largest humanitarian crisis in the world. With Covid-19 spreading due to lack of basic PPE and sanitation, Yemen is facing an emergency within emergency.

  • Over 24 million people – some 80 % of the population – in need of humanitarian assistance, including more than 12 million children
  • Many Yemenis are struggling to survive and feed their families as the country's currency is collapsing.
  • 2 million children are acutely malnourished and over 368,000 children under 5 are suffering from severe acute malnutrition and urgently need life-saving food to survive.
  • Just £11 will provide food for a child for a week.

Why is this important for me?

Not having to think about where my next meal, clean water, shower or medical help will come from is an extreme privilege that is so easy to take for granted. Just thinking about the crisis and feeling bad for those involved is not enough and I wanted to be more proactive in my contribution.

What will I do?

I love staying fit, dress up and challenge myself and those around me, so I will put all of those together! For every donation milestone that we hit, I will do 10 push ups/squats in different outfits (on video and post on my social media) or invite you to create a challenge - there are no limits (let's see where saying that gets me...)! 

A taster of how this may evolve (I'm in the middle):

Every donation, no matter the amount, counts and makes a difference to those in need.

Thank you for your support <3
