Yemen Emergency Appeal


On the brink of famine

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’.

Every ten minutes, a child under five dies of preventable causes and 10 million people in Yemen are living with extreme hunger. Half of all health facilities are damaged or unable to function and the country has been suffering from a record cholera outbreak since 2017. 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.

We are also 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 constructing wells and rehabilitating existing ones to provide hundreds of families with safe water.
