THE CAUSE - YEMEN EMERGENCY


5 years of devastating war; now the country could be wiped off the map.

Yemen has been facing the world’s worst humanitarian crisis for five years, suffering in a relentless war, devastating famine and the spread of diseases such as cholera. Over 20 million people do not know where their next meal will come from and are facing starvation. With over 80% of the population – 24 million people – being in urgent need of assistance, the time to act is now. UN reports estimate that 130 children under the age of 5 die each day from hunger and disease. The UN warns that the coronavirus pandemic could wipe Yemen off the map. Yemen’s health infrastructure has effectively collapsed and people struggle to access even the most basic healthcare. Yemen only has 10 health workers per 10,000 people, and currently people are being denied treatment due to a lack of medical supplies. There are currently hundreds of reported Covid-19 cases and deaths, but this figure is rising and the real numbers are believed to be much higher.

TRAVEL


We will be leaving our London Hub in east London at approx 8pm on Friday by Minibus and hope to return back by 10pm on the Sunday. Please be mindful that there may not be any public transport in the early hours. Once you have registered we will add you to the trek WhatsApp group so everyone can get acquainted and we can easily share updates and information.
