Yemen Crisis Appeal

The world has given up on Yemen

*Do they not see that they are tried every year once or twice but then they do not repent nor do they remember? (Quran, 9:126)

In Yemen, starvation and cholera aren’t unavoidable tragedies, they are man-made, preventable crises, and it’s the responsibility of all of us to work to cure them.

After 6 long years of brutal conflict, during which families endured famine, cholera, and war, are now facing the extreme hardship of COVID-19. The UN has declared that malnutrition has never been worse in Yemen, and the pandemic has put the food supply under even greater strain.

20 million Yemenis depend on humanitarian support just to survive. Your support has never been more urgently needed to preserve so many lives in Yemen.

Without more help, the UN has warned that millions face malnutrition and starvation, and 400,000 children are at risk of starving to death in 2021.

When you’re starving, your body begins to devour its own muscles, including the heart, before it simply cannot fight any longer. You’re much more likely to catch and die from one of the many diseases plaguing communities – such as dengue fever, Chikungunya fever, cholera, or COVID-19.

Cholera has been plaguing Yemen for seven years, with an estimated 2 million cases overall. Taiz, where we’re delivering some of our key projects, is considered extremely vulnerable to cholera, because of a shortage of drinking water for an estimated 98% of people.

Help save lives now

Human Appeal is running five projects across Yemen to help the most vulnerable families to survive these critical months.

Your donations will help us to provide:

  • Nutritious month-long food parcels to 14,350 people affected by floods in Hajjah and Taiz.
  • Training to 20 healthcare workers on cholera awareness.
  • Hygiene promotion to 33,600 people in Taiz.
  • COVID-19 kits to 7,700 people.
  • Medical supplies, PPE to 2 hospitals for 10 weeks.
  • Training to 20 health workers.
  • Clean water to 52,000 people for 3 months.
  • Hygiene kits to 5,600 people in Taiz.
  • Building 17 durable homes for families made homeless by flooding in Hudaydah.

Last year, you helped us to support 429,137 Yemenis through projects responding to malnutrition, cholera, displacement, and COVID-19, as well as through development projects to increase resilience.

The time is now

Yemen is on the brink of a famine, which would decimate the entire country. We cannot allow our inaction to cost families precious lives.

Please join us in saving Yemen from destruction. Your donation could ensure a family survives the next month, recovers from COVID-19, and is treated for cholera.

Your donation can, truly, save a life. It is in these dark and difficult times, that our inaction, or our action, will make all the difference. One donation, truly, can save lives.

When we are asked what we did to stop Yemen from being wiped out, what will we say?

Do they not see that they are tried every year once or twice but then they do not repent nor do they remember? (Quran, 9:126)
