The Prophet (saw) said, ‘The best of men are the men of Yemen, belief is Yemeni, and I am Yemeni’. (Ahmad). He (saw) also said, ‘For me to walk to for my brother’s need is better for me than secluding in worship in this Masjid of mine for a month'. (Qada-ul-Hawaij)
We are inviting you to challenge yourself, get active and raise life-saving relief for the people of Yemen. Are you ready for a challenge?
Walk For Yemen
Alhamdulilah we currently have 43 participants taking part in our Walk For Yemen, and so far, they have raised £2650, which will provide bread to 37,100 people in Yemen. Insha’Allah we are hoping to reach our £15,000 target over the next month which will help to feed 210,000 people. Will you help us to feed the people of Yemen?
Our star fundraisers Nayla and Fariha wanted to tell you why they got involved in our walk:
“I have wanted to improve my health for ages. I have arthritis in both of my knees and joined the gym a few weeks ago but was still finding it hard to go by myself. I saw this event on Instagram so signed up straight away, and now I’m using this event to focus on building up my stamina and my fitness levels.
I am going to the gym 3/4 times a week now and I have also encouraged my sister to sign up. So far, we have collectively raised £1000 by encouraging our friends and family to donate and we are hoping to raise £1500. This is our first Muslim Hands events and we’re really looking forward to the walk". - Nayla
Fariha also had to say:
The U.N has described the situation in Yemen as ‘the worst man-made humanitarian crisis of our time’ and the spread of Coronavirus has only made it more difficult for them. There’s a lack of healthcare, clean water, and food – which is only allowing to disease to spread. But you can stop this.
Every 10 minutes a child in Yemen dies from preventable causes such as the lack of food and water – and this is where your donations to our bread factory will help save a life. ‘Whoever saves one [life] - it is as if he had saved the entirety of Mankind’. [The Noble Qur’an, 5:32]

We will provide you with face masks, hand sanitisers and gloves. You will be required to complete a health declaration prior to departure. We also will ask you to observe social distancing from everyone who does not belong to your household throughout the hiking trip.
