Don’t give 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)

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

£45 – Help contribute towards providing a vulnerable Yemeni with cataract surgery to prevent and reverse blindness (1 of 10 shares).

£200 – Provide a family with blankets, mattresses, and full winter outfits.

£600 - Help contribute towards providing an entire family whose home was destroyed with a safe brick shelter with rooms, windows and a door (1 of 10 shares).

Over seven years ago, conflict broke out in Yemen. Today, 10 million Yemenis are one step away from starvation. Families will have thought that life could not get harder, but each year the crisis deepened, and, today, they face malnutrition, cholera, dirty water, and COVID-19, all while the conflict continues. This year, the UN declared that Yemen is facing the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.

This year, humanitarian need has increased by 27 per cent. As winter arrives, displaced families are being forgotten, left to survive in temporary shelters that don’t protect them from frost, sub-zero temperatures, and heavy rainfall.

Do your part to ease this hardship

Donate, and help us to keep families warm, reverse hunger, provide clean water, support education, build homes, and slow the spread of COVID-19. We’re working across sectors to address the most urgent crises that Yemeni families face. Join us in reversing this catastrophe.

This winter, give £200 and provide a displaced Yemeni family with four thick winter blankets, five mattresses, and a winter wardrobe. Each child and parent will receive socks, and thick pyjamas. All children will also receive a winter hat, while parents will receive a scarf or shawl.

In Lahij, we’re repairing 2 water sources, providing a water tank, solar panel, water collection points, and reservoirs for livestock, helping 14,000 displaced people to have long-term access to clean water.

We’re working across 5 clinics in Taiz, providing essential medical care to 4,400 people, as well as chemotherapy and cancer support for 600 children in a clinic in Sana’a.

In Taiz, we’re also distributing bread to 350 families for 2 months, providing them with a secure source of food during this crucial time when malnutrition and starvation are extreme risks.

We’re also renovating the 6th October School in Taiz, repairing 3 classrooms, installing 2 bathrooms, and providing 100 tables and chairs, helping 650 children (including 280 girls) to continue their education safely.

Residents of Tihama in Hodeidah, Yemen were hit by devastating floods last summer, which killed over 130 and affected a total of 35,000 families. Donate, and help us to provide 20 families with a safe brick shelter, providing safety, dignity and security.

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

Don’t look away

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, and protecting families from winter. Your donation could keep an entire family warm throughout winter, ensure they have enough to eat for an entire month, rebuild their lives after a flood, or receive treatment for malnutrition.

Your donation can, truly, save a life. We must prevent a catastrophe while there is still time.
