Over 8.4 million people are struggling. One child under the age of five dies every ten minutes.
The tensions in Yemen continue, placing further strain on local communities. With food supply chains damaged, millions are severely malnourished and increasingly weak. The elderly, pregnant women and infants are in significant danger.
The conflict began in 2015 and has caused utter devastation. Homes, schools and businesses have all been destroyed and the economy subsequently collapsed. To date, over 9,000 people have been killed and 50,000 injured. The country’s main entry point for food, fuel and essential supplies has suffered problems, too, leaving those left fighting for their lives each day.
Millions of people are at risk of starvation, disease and violence. With the conflict escalating, it is likely that food and medical supplies will become scarcer moving forward despite the ongoing efforts from charities and the UN regarding a ceasefire.
Thousands of homes have been destroyed, leaving families without a roof over their heads. During the 2014 conflicts, more than 140,000 homes were damaged, with close to 15,000 either severely damaged or totally destroyed.
Here at Muslim Aid, we are working with our partners to deliver food, clean water, healthcare, and essential non-food items in our Yemen Crisis Appeal.
We have been working with our partners on the ground to deliver:
With hundreds of thousands of Yemeni people displaced, having fled to neighbouring countries, we desperately need your donations to help deliver crucial aid. We are doing what we can, but there are still millions more people who need our help.
You can help us to continue our efforts in saving and improving the lives of millions of people.
Your donations can provide food for starving families, easing their hunger and sustaining their energy.
You can help us to give bottled milk for babies who cannot be breastfed because their mothers are too malnourished.
Your support can also help us to deliver essential medical aid including medicines and immunisations to prevent the spread of infections and disease.
