Spike Productions has launched the Basketful Relief Project (BRP) to create and publish beautiful children’s stories to support emergency famine relief for children. Spike Productions’ Basketful Relief Project (BRP) is a proud supporter of organizations fighting world hunger and currently has started a BRP Save the Children Yemen famine relief fundraising page. With a percent of book sales through the BRP, Spike productions makes monthly donations to this fundraising page. You can also join us by clicking the link and making a direct donation today. This is an ongoing fundraiser. After we meet a goal of $2,000 the page will reset and start again.
The mission of the BRP is to feed children’s tummies and minds through the creation and sale of beautiful children’s stories while supporting established famine relief organizations fighting hunger in children here in the US and around the world.
Why Spike Productions’ Basketful Relief Project (BRP) is a proud supporter of Save the Children Famine Relief Efforts in Yemen
Embroiled in civil conflict since 2011 and civil war since 2015, Yemen is experiencing the world’s worst man-made humanitarian disaster. As war continues, the UN says it is on the brink of the world’s worst famine in 100 years. Twenty-two million people are in urgent need of help, half of them children who are facing a triple threat – hunger, disease and bombs on a daily basis. Save the Children estimates more than 100 young children are dying from extreme hunger every single day.
Save the Children (STC) is on the ground in Yemen, working to help the most vulnerable access food, healthcare and education.
- STC has treated over 150,000 children under five suffering from malnutrition and is supporting health facilities and mobile health and nutrition teams in some of the hardest to reach areas.
- STC is supporting over 150 health facilities to provide life-saving primary healthcare, and responding to outbreaks of cholera and diphtheria.
- STC is distributing food to young children, pregnant women and breastfeeding moms.
