Guernsey States have agreed to make further donations to the Yemen crisis appeal.
It comes after the country faces new challenges over the cholera epidemic, which broke out ealier this year and placed new demands on the country’s already fractured health care system.
The crisis appeal, which launched last year by the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), has now extended it's scope to include funding for programmes to treat those who have contracted the waterborne disease.
Last year the Overseas Aid & Development Commission donated £50,000 to to the war-tron country to help familes affeceted by the crisis.
Deputy Yerby, President of the Overseas Aid & Development Commission, hopes a further donation to the appeal will help to reduce the cholera epidemic spreading further.
