'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.
Although it has received little in-depth media coverage or international response compared to other crises, this silent war has had a devastating effect on the country. Half of all health facilities are damaged or unable to function and food prices have soared. Millions of Yemenis have little or no access to clean water and every ten minutes, a child under five dies of preventable causes.
With so much undue suffering of innocent people, it is our duty to assist where we can. Right now, over 8 million people are on the brink of starvation. Children and women are especially vulnerable, with 3 million children already malnourished and many more at risk.
We have already distributed emergency food packs containing such essentials as rice, lentils and flour to families in some of the worst-affected areas of Sana’a, Aden and Hadhramout. Now, as even more people fall victim to extreme hunger, we need your support to reach more families. Act now and help us provide life-saving essentials to those in desperate need.
