Cancer screening and testing in Yemen
The Messenger (PBUH) said: “Be merciful to others and you will receive mercy. Forgive others and Allah will forgive you.” (Ahmad)
20 million Yemenis need healthcare, while clinics and hospitals are chronically overstretched. With a quarter of the population malnourished, 80% of cancer is detected in the late stages in Yemen. But with early detection of breast cancer, the survival rate can be as high as 96%.
Help us to save lives in Yemen in the blessed month of Ramadan by providing early cancer detection to women who are struggling to afford food, shelter and healthcare. Spread mercy in this month of multiplied reward.
Give £175 this Ramadan and help us to fight breast cancer by providing five women in Yemen with cancer testing and biopsies.
Struggling to survive, women can’t prioritise their health
With your help this Ramadan, we want to support 700 women in Sana’a and Aden to detect cancer early through biopsies, which is when a small amount of bone or tissue is tested for cancer. We’ll be working with Al Jamhuri General Hospital, Sana’a, Al-Hayat Centre, and the National Cancer Control Foundation in Sana’a and Aden.
A mercy for the future
Our goal is to reduce breast cancer mortality by 2.5% each year, helping to save lives by providing testing to Yemeni women who wouldn’t usually be able to afford to perform health checks.
Our work in Yemen
Human Appeal has been changing lives through our projects in Yemen since 2014. Last year, we helped 963,849 people in Yemen, including providing over 800,000 people with healthcare. In 2020, we supported 358,011 people through healthcare, nutrition, winter support, and projects fighting COVID-19 and malnutrition.
Your charity this Ramadan could truly save lives in Yemen by providing critical healthcare. Let’s be a mercy to our sisters in this holy month, and transform the blessings of our hereafter.
