Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Yemen Relief to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Yemen Relief we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Yemen Relief to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Yemen Relief will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Yemen Relief receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

What is the Yemen Crisis?

In Yemen, about 2.3 million children under the age of five are acutely malnourished. Four hundred thousand of these youngsters are suffering from severe acute malnutrition and may perish if they do not receive immediate treatment. Yemen is battling the terrible pandemic while attempting to deal with severe food shortages, as Covid-19 is already spreading quickly throughout the nation.

Catastrophe in Yemen: 24 million people want humanitarian assistance

Tens of thousands of lives have been lost as a result of the ongoing violence in Yemen, which is already one of the poorest countries in the region. Over 20 million people are unsure where their next meal will come from. A conflict-torn country is now on the verge of famine.
With families experiencing prolonged armed war, relocation, disease, and economic loss, an estimated 24 million people (80% of the country’s population) now require humanitarian assistance to survive – a figure so high that it is the highest in the world.
The largest food security catastrophe humans have caused in Yemen.
The most fundamental necessities of life have been taken away from communities and families, tearing them apart,

  • 19.7 million people require basic healthcare
  • Water and sanitation facilities are required for around 18 million people
  • The conflict has resulted in the displacement of almost 3 million people
  • The reality is that Yemen is in terrible condition and is just getting worse

Frequently Asked Questions

Many families flee to neighbouring nations such as Djibouti and Somalia. Although there is violence and danger, many people choose to remain in Yemen due to the dire conditions in the surrounding area.

Historically, Yemen has been among the Middle East’s poorest nations. But the effects of the conflict and the global financial crisis have crippled the nation and put millions of families in danger of hunger.

Families can no longer afford basic meals due to high inflation and a lack of employment possibilities. Many displaced families are selling off their goods, forcing their kids out of school to work, begging on the streets, or only eating once a day in order to put food on the table.

 

We have staff on the ground in Yemen for yemen charity, reaching out to vulnerable families in all 20 governorates affected by the violence. We provide aid to both refugees entering Yemen from neighbouring conflicts and internally displaced Yemenis.

Families are receiving an emergency shelter, specialised kits to aid in bomb damage restoration, and financial aid to help them purchase food and medical supplies. Also, we are providing those who have lost everything in the battle with beds, blankets, sleeping mats, cooking sets, buckets, and more.

This will vary depending on the circumstance, but we always prioritise providing those in the most dire need with life-saving, essential assistance. We collaborate with our teams and delivery partners to ensure that the right help is delivered as fast as possible. Our assistance typically includes the often-life-saving requirements of an emergency response phase, such as food, clean water, and medical care.

For public hospitals and public health facilities, our partners are on the ground supplying vital medications, disposables, and beds.

The type of emergency will determine how to proceed. Whenever you call or write to us, you can specify the nation you want your money to go to by choosing it from the drop-down box. What we offer often depends on how much you donate. For instance, £25 may buy a family a month’s worth of food, and £150 can cover a month’s worth of cholera treatment.

We only employ secure systems with banking-standard safety measures to ensure that your payment and financial data are protected. All online payments are conducted securely using KeyIVR Ltd, PayPal, or SmartDebit, and no financial information is stored on our computers.

As per the Famine Early Warning Systems Network, which tracks global food security, about half of Yemen’s population is experiencing crisis-level or worse food insecurity in 2020. If things don’t improve, a famine could be declared by December.

Yemen has been on the verge of starvation for years, and the situation has steadily gotten worse, especially as the conflict persists; people’s funds have been depleted after years of unemployment, and access to humanitarian aid is still in danger. In the absence of aid, millions of people are anticipated to confront a worsening crisis and increased levels of hunger. Presently, the majority of the population does not have enough to eat.

Families cannot afford the available food because it is too expensive, the economy is in chaos, and many people have lost their jobs.

The number of municipal charities increased significantly. The Municipal Corporations Act 1835, which was a result of the Brougham Commission, restructured a number of neighbourhood charities into a single organization that the local government governed.

Yemen Relief is dedicated to providing humanitarian aid and support to the people of Yemen who are affected by crisis and conflict.
