Since the beginning of 2015, Yemen has been turned into a desolate warzone due to political mismanagement and civil

wars. As the world’s worst humanitarian crisis in 100 years,

the people of Yemen are struggling with famine,

malnutrition, cholera, and now covid-19. The lack of funding

given to the Yemeni people has not allowed them to test for

many cases. Over half of all health facilities have shut down

due to lack of funding and supplies necessary to treat patients.

The world has turned a blind eye to the poorest land in the

Arab nation, the Yemeni people have suffered far too long. 

Yemen cannot wait.

 

Here are some facts gathered from the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. 

 

  • An estimated 80% of the population, 24 million people, are in dire need of some form of humanitarian assistance.

  • Nearly 150,000 Yemenis have been affected by the flash floods that have caused damage to infrastructure, displacing people and exposing thousands to potentially life threatening disease outbreaks.

  • Two-thirds of all districts in the country are already pre-famine, and one-third face a convergence of multiple acute vulnerabilities.

  • Since October 2016, Yemen’s cholera outbreak has been the largest in history, with over two-million cases.

  • Every 10 minutes, a child under the age of five dies from preventable causes.

  •  an estimated 17.8 million are food insecure

  • 8.4 million people are severely food insecure and at risk of starvation

  • 16 million lack access to safe water and sanitation

  • 16.4 million lack access to adequate healthcare


 

We are working with a local shelter/orphanage in Al Hudayah, Yemen, that houses refugees, orphans, and families that have been displaced from their areas, whether due to immense floods or lack of resources. Those in charge of the shelter will provide the necessities, whether that be food, clothes and/or medication.

100% of the funds will be provided to those in need in Yemen. 

We will attempt to retrieve photos/videos with results.

*If more funds are received than expected, money will be used for other areas of need in Yemen and will be updated with organizations taking care of them.*
