Four out of five people need life-saving aid
Yemen is the poorest country in the Middle East, torn apart by conflict and gripped by hunger. With your support we can provide urgent life-saving aid. A staggering four out of five of the 24 million population need it.
Sami Jassar, who works for Islamic Relief in Yemen, explains: “Since March 2015 the situation has got worse. Eighty per cent of people in Yemen now need humanitarian assistance. Essential goods, such as food, have more than doubled in price, and specific medicines can no longer be found in the shops.”
Islamic Relief is scaling up its response in the Aden and Lahj governorates of Yemen, following an escalation in conflict, by supporting 3,000 households with food and non food items.
