Almost seven years ago, conflict broke out in Yemen. Families will have thought that life could not get harder, but each year the crisis deepened, and, today, they face starvation, cholera, dirty water, and COVID-19, all while the conflict continues. This year, the UN declared that Yemen is facing the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.

Seven years on, malnutrition has never been worse, food prices have doubled, with 66% of Yemenis having to skip meals and 70% of families don’t have clean water.

Each day brings more hardship for more families. 400,000 children are at risk of starving to death in 2021. This is unacceptable. Help us to ease this hardship.

Do your part to ease their hardship

Help us to reverse hunger, provide clean water, support education, build homes, and slow the spread of COVID-19. We’re working across sectors to address the most urgent crises that Yemeni families face. Join us in reversing this catastrophe.

In Lahij, we’re repairing 2 water sources, providing a water tank, solar panel, water collection points, and reservoirs for livestock, helping 14,000 displaced people to have long-term access to clean water.

We’re working across 5 clinics in Taiz, providing essential medical care to 4,400 people, as well as chemotherapy and cancer support for 600 children in a clinic in Sana’a.

In Taiz, we’re also distributing bread to 350 families for 2 months, providing them with a secure source of food during this crucial time when malnutrition and starvation are extreme risks.

We’re also renovating the 6th October School in Taiz, repairing 3 classrooms, installing 2 bathrooms, and providing 100 tables and chairs, helping 650 children (including 280 girls) to continue their education safely.

Residents of Tihama in Hodeidah, Yemen were hit by devastating floods last summer, which killed over 130 and affected a total of 35,000 families. Donate, and help us to provide 20 families with a safe brick shelter, providing safety, dignity and security.

We’re also working in Taiz to provide cataract surgery to 300 of the most vulnerable people, reversing and preventing curable blindness.

Why give through Human Appeal?

Human Appeal has been changing lives through our projects in Yemen since 2014, and we have maintained a country office in the capital of Sana’a since 2016. The breakout of the civil war in 2015 brought home the need for us to expand our operations and we have helped over 900,000 people during the course of the conflict, primarily through health projects and emergency food aid to tackle malnutrition.

As a sign of how the need has grown since the start of the conflict, in the last quarter of 2019 more than half of the people we supported worldwide were in Yemen.
