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’.

The ongoing conflict is devastating already impoverished communities. Millions have been displaced and Yemen is on the brink of famine. Now, the coronavirus pandemic is threatening vulnerable families even more. With half of all health facilities damaged or unable to function we urgently need you to donate food, medical care and clean water to Yemen to help them cope with the coronavirus crisis.

With your help, we've been distributing food parcels, providing school meals, and setting up mobile health clinics in rural areas. We are also constructing water wells and rehabilitating existing ones to provide vulnerable communities with safe water.

Our plans for the coming year include establishing a bread factory to feed thousands of people each day and providing essential medical care and PPE. We will also begin our largest water project in Yemen, constructing a deep water well to provide clean water to 50,000 people. Give now to help us continue this life-saving work in Yemen.

One Million Pound Pledge for Yemen

Thanks to your generosity, we are pledging one million pounds over the next six months to support various projects in Yemen. This intervention is vital if millions of vulnerable people are to survive the impact of the ongoing war and now pandemic. 

Drastic change in the economy as well as funding cuts will mean that an estimated 5.5 million Yemenis are at risk of losing access to life-saving aid, with women and children being the most vulnerable.
