Lifesaving healthcare in Yemen
The Messenger (PBUH) said: “And to walk with a brother to meet his needs is dearer to me than observing i‘tikaaf in this mosque – meaning the mosque of Madinah – for a month.” (Al Tabaraani)
Dying to live. 14 million Yemenis urgently need healthcare, while clinics and hospitals are chronically overstretched. Change starts now. Help us to provide treatment to 5,000 Yemenis across six clinics.
£500 – Provide 20 people with life-saving medical support and supplies in six healthcare facilities in Taiz, including a critical Children’s Cancer Centre.
The bombs spare nobody, not even cancer clinics
For six years, residents of Taiz, Yemen, have endured brutal conflict. It was one of the worst-hit regions in Yemen, with families losing their homes, belongings, livelihoods and security in the war.
The conflict has made it extremely difficult to access healthcare; a staggering 19.7 million Yemenis need some sort of health assistance, a 14 million urgently need healthcare.
Half of Yemen’s health facilities have been affected by the war, with only 50% fully functioning. In 2020, there were 163 attacks on health facilities, including on cancer treatment centres.
This Ramadan, let’s be the change that these vulnerable people need.
A vision for the future
It especially difficult to fight cancer and disease in Yemen, where communities are struggling to cope after 6 years of conflict. Change starts with all of us. Together, we want to provide 4,400 people across 5 clinics in Taiz with essential healthcare, such as treatment for cholera, diphtheria, and COVID-19. Your donations will also provide chemotherapy treatment and cancer support for 600 children under the age of 10 in Sana’a.
In all, your support this Ramadan will help 5,000 people to have critical, life-saving healthcare.
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 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.
Your charity this Ramadan could truly save lives in Yemen by providing critical healthcare. Let’s walk with our brothers and sisters to meet their needs in this holy month, and transform the blessings of our hereafter.
Change starts here.
