Donate to help Yemen: a large humanitarian crisis

The situation is desperate. But we won’t give up on people in Yemen.

Five years into the conflict and Yemen remains the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. In the last year we’ve seen coronavirus emerge as a lethal threat to an incredibly vulnerable population. This is in addition to the stark reality you’ve probably heard about before:

Millions are on the edge of starvation. Families are struggling to survive. Over two million are displaced by conflict. Medicines and medical supplies are extremely scarce. Only half of the country’s health facilities are fully functioning.

With the help of our supporters, we’re working with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to provide healthcare workers with medical supplies, and give communities access to health, sanitation, and hygiene services to slow the spread of dangerous diseases like cholera. We want to continue to provide food parcels, clean water, tents and essential household items like blankets, water containers and soap for people who’ve lost their homes. 

But we can’t do this alone. Your support could mean help reaches people whose lives depend on it.

  
Please donate now. It could save lives.
