How You Can Help

The Prophet (saw) said, 'The best of men are the men of Yemen, belief is Yemeni, and I am Yemeni.' (Ahmad)

The people of Yemen were directly blessed by the Prophet Muhammad (saw) - but these blessed people are currently suffering from ‘the worst man-made humanitarian crisis of our time’. Four years of civil war and regional conflict have left millions of Yemeni families in need of aid just to survive.

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, 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.

Key Facts

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.

Help Feed a Child

Children are bearing the brunt of the conflict. Every ten minutes a child under five is dying of preventable causes and nearly 2 million Yemeni children are severely malnourished.

£150 can provide a child in Yemen with nutritious school meals every day for a whole year.

Medical Clinic (1 day)

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.

Help Provide Water

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.
