Cataract surgery for Yemenis
The Messenger (PBUH) said: Whoever brings ease to one in difficulty, Allah will make it easy for him in this life and the Hereafter.” (Sahih Muslim)
Blinded by war. Hospitals can’t meet the communities’ needs, and war-affected families can’t afford to access healthcare. Help us to provide cataract surgery to 300 of the most vulnerable Yemenis.
£450 – Give the gift of eyesight by providing a vulnerable Yemeni with cataract surgery to prevent and reverse blindness.
Overstretched health facilities
For six years, residents of Taiz, Yemen, have endured brutal conflict. It was one of the worst-hit regions in Yemen, and families lost their homes, belongings, livelihoods and security in the war.
Al-Taawun Hospital can’t meet the needs of the local community, and has asked for support in providing cataract surgery for 300 patients who are at risk of losing their sight.
This Ramadan, let’s be the change that these vulnerable people need.
A vision for the future
It especially difficult to be vulnerable to blindness when you live in insecurity and are already struggling to rebuild after 6 years of conflict. Change starts here. When you donate £450, you’ll help a vulnerable Yemeni to retain and recover their eyesight. With your help this Ramadan, we want to support 160 women and 140 men to be able to see, and remove the risk of blindness.
Our work in Yemen
Human Appeal has been changing lives through our projects in Yemen since 2014. We’ve helped over 900,000 people during the course of the conflict, primarily through health projects and emergency food aid to tackle malnutrition. Last year, you helped us to support 290,506 people in Yemen through projects combating malnutrition, cholera, COVID-19 and water shortages. You supported 23,240 people through Feed the Fasting, helped 41,923 people through health and medical projects, and supported 126,000 people through water and cholera protection projects.
Help us to turn life around for one vulnerable person this Ramadan. Ease a hardship in the holy month, and reap the bountiful blessings.
Change starts here.
