'O Allah bless us in our Sham! O Allah bless us in our Yemen!' (Tirmidhi)
Described by the UN as ‘The worst man-made humanitarian crisis of our time’, the war in Yemen has turned a poor country into a humanitarian catastrophe. Four years of civil war and regional conflict have left a massive three-quarters of the population in need of aid just to survive.
Right now, over 8 million people in Yemen are on the brink of starvation. Half of all health facilities are damaged or unable to function and millions of Yemenis have little or no access to clean water. Every ten minutes, a child under five dies of preventable causes. It is our duty to put a stop to this tragedy.
With your help, Muslim Hands has been distributing food parcels to some of the worst-affected areas in Sana'a, Hadhramout, Ta'iz and Aden, including essentials such as rice, flour, kidney beans and cooking oil.
We are now implementing long-term projects which include providing school meals for children, as well as setting up fully-equipped mobile health clinics in rural areas. We are also constructing wells and rehabilitating existing ones to provide hundreds of families with safe water. The people of Yemen are relying on your support to survive. Yemen can't wait. Act now.
Yemen is facing a humanitarian catastrophe
Every ten minutes, a child under five in Yemen dies of preventable causes
Over 8 million people are on the brink of starvation
16.4 million lack access to adequate healthcare
Help Feed a Family
Over 8.4 million people in Yemen are on the brink of starvation. Something as simple as a food parcel could mean the difference between life and death for a family.
£65 can provide up to seven people with enough food to last them a whole month, including essentials such as rice, flour, kidney beans and cooking oil.
As a result of the conflict, only half of Yemen's health facilities remain functional, but the need for medical care is higher than ever. Cholera outbreaks are on the rise, levels of malnutrition are sky-high and 60 people a day are being injured in the fighting.
£300 can cover the running of a fully equipped mobile medical clinic serving the most vulnerable and isolated communities for a whole day.
Already one of the most water-scarce countries in the world, the destruction of so much of the country's infrastructure has left a massive 16 million people without access to safe water and sanitation.
£500 could help to construct or rehabilitate deep water wells, providing communities with clean, safe water on their doorstep.
