The world has given up on Yemen

“Whoever removes a grief from a believer from amongst the sorrows of this life, Allah will remove a grief from him amongst the sorrows of the Day of Resurrection” (Muslim)

£80 – Provide a COVID-19 hygiene and protection pack to last a family-of-seven for one month.

£70 – Provide a Yemeni family facing malnutrition with a nutritious food parcel to last one month.

£450 - Provide vulnerable Yemeni with cataract surgery to prevent and reverse blindness.

£6,000 - Provide an entire family whose home was destroyed with a safe brick shelter with rooms, windows and a door.

In Yemen, starvation and cholera aren’t unavoidable tragedies, they are man-made, preventable crises, and it’s the responsibility of all of us to work to cure them.

After 6 long years of brutal conflict, during which families endured malnutrition, cholera, and war, are now facing the extreme hardship of COVID-19. The UN has declared that malnutrition has never been worse in Yemen, and the pandemic has put the food supply under even greater strain.

Your support has never been more urgently needed to preserve so many lives in Yemen. Without more help, the UN has warned that millions face malnutrition and starvation, and 400,000 children are at risk of starving to death in 2021.

Residents of Tihama in Hodeidah, Yemen, have not only endured six years of war, but were also hit by devastating floods last summer, which killed over 130 and affected a total of 35,000 families. Help us to provide 20 families with a safe brick shelter.

We’re also working in Taiz to provide cataract surgery to 300 of the most vulnerable people, reversing and preventing curable blindness.

Transform lives

Yemen is on the brink of a catastrophe which would decimate the entire country. We cannot allow our inaction to cost families precious lives.

Please join us in saving Yemen from destruction. Your donation could ensure a family has enough to eat for an entire month, can rebuild their lives after a flood, or can receive treatment for malnutrition.

Your donation can, truly, save a life. Your donation, truly, can save lives. When we are asked what we did to stop Yemen from being wiped out, what will we say?
