Yemen is the worst humanitarian crisis in history
The conflict in Yemen has resulted in a catastrophic humanitarian crisis and is widely considered the worst in recent history. The conflict has decimated Yemen’s economy and resulted in widespread poverty. Many businesses, including shops and factories, have closed, significantly increasing unemployed individuals.
In areas such as Al Hudaydah, many infants and children are dying from starvation. Yemen’s people struggle to access essential resources such as food, clean water, medicine, and education.
Yemen was already one of the poorest nations in the world before the conflict, but the situation has since become unbearable due to the ongoing war. Not only are people dying from the conflict, but they are also succumbing to pandemics such as cholera, dengue fever, malaria, and chikungunya. The lack of access to clean water is exacerbating the spread of diseases such as cholera.
Many children are dying from severe malnutrition, and a significant portion of the population of approximately 30 million is facing starvation. Around 5 million Yemenis are displaced both within and outside of the country. The conflict has resulted in the deaths of thousands of innocent people and left behind thousands of vulnerable orphans who struggle to obtain necessities.
Support Our Life-saving projects in Yemen
What We Do:
Yemen Relief provides humanitarian assistance exclusively to the needy in Yemen through life-saving and sustainable projects. As part of our efforts, we work with other charities to save lives and maximise our impact on people’s lives.
We implement many projects such as orphan sponsorship, food parcels, bread distribution, malnutrition food packs, clean drinking water, and education. In addition, we run seasonal campaigns such as Ramadan where we provide food for the fasting to break their fast, and Qurbani to distribute fresh meat on Eid day.
Yemen Relief delivers Zakat which is a great support that we do for the needy people and especially disadvantaged families who have no one to take care of them.
