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.
Muslim Charity is delivering emergency aid on the ground in Yemen right now! Our local partners are advising us that the need is dire and the people of Yemen need our help.
As you read this, we are delivering food, water and emergency supplies in Ta’izz, Yemen. We urgently need emergency food packs, malnutrition kits for the malnourished and innocent children of Yemen, clean water for families and precautionary medicine kits for Covid-19 patients.
