Yemen

Yemen, one of the oldest inhabited areas on Earth, is also the poorest nation in the Arab world.

With ongoing violence and conflict and a staggering 24.3 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance. That’s around 80% of the population. Increasing numbers of people– over 3.6 million people in fact – have been left displaced, building pressure on areas with already scarce resources.

Less than half of the country’s health facilities function and communities are worried about how they’ll survive one day to the next.

A lack of access to, safe water and food and resulting malnutrition increases risk of contracting increasingly prevalent water-borne diseases such as cholera. Children in particular are feeling the impact of the conflict. With millions of children out of school, Yemen’s younger generation are lacking the security and stability of a ‘normal’ childhood.

Islamic Relief in Yemen

Our teams on the ground are striving to support this nation in crisis, providing essential relief and livelihood support. Islamic Relief has been working with communities in Yemen since 1998, implementing seasonal Ramadan and Qurbani food distributions, responding to ongoing emergencies and when possible delivering long-term development programmes.

For families in crisis, we provide essential non-food items as part of our winterisation projects and emergency nutrition to families in crisis including malnourished children and pregnant/lactating women. We have also provided families with life-saving medicines to treat cholera.

In addition, we offer essential livelihood assistance to locals, helping farmers and fishermen overcome drought, and increasing women and young people’s ability to earn a living through the provision drought-resistant tools and livelihood and skills training.

Through our Yemen Emergency Appeal, we’re continuing to serve communities across the country, providing emergency food aid and Covid-19 support.
