    TheGandhiGuy July's #fastforpeace charity is the International Rescue Committee. Today, years of civil war in Yemen has caused a severe crisis, which is worsening because of foreign bombing. With more than 17 million at risk of starvation, and a million affected by a deadly cholera outbreak, help is urgently needed. In honor of Gandhi’s care and concern for the displaced, fastforpeace.org asks you to donate the money you would normally spend on food during the fast for peace to the International Rescue Committee. This nonprofit organization provides relief services to those around the world, including (in 2017) an estimated 2 million people affected by the hunger crises in East Africa, Nigeria and Yemen.

    You can donate here: https://www.rescue.org/
