Yemen is one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises. Years of conflict have led to widespread hunger and disease. More than 20 million people are in need of dire humanitarian assistance, including almost 13 million children.
Economic collapse and the destruction of health, education, and other critical systems has trapped Yemenis in a cycle of poverty.
Islamic Relief is a leading humanitarian organization in Yemen, with thousands of field staff and volunteers around the country. We’ve delivered life-saving aid in provinces such as Hodeida, Ta’iz, Saa’da, and Aden. In addition, notable charities depend on us to deliver their aid due to our strong relationships and infrastructures across the provinces.
A few of our life-saving efforts include:
Thanks to you, we’ve been able to accomplish so much. But there’s still so much more to do. By continuing to support our efforts in Yemen, you can help make a difference in the lives of those in desperate need.
Abdulhameed and his family of seven live in a small village in Yemen. Since the start of the war, the village has been faced with severe challenges. He said, “Before the crisis, [things were] easier, but now we are deprived of necessities such as food, and [can’t afford] luxuries. My salary is not enough, and we have to focus [only] on the provision of basic needs.” His village is one of many struggling as a result of the war. “This war has affected us mentally, financially, and physically,” he added.
With the help of IRUSA’s food distribution, Abdulhameed is able to save money and provide his family with things they lack. “This helped me a lot. I can save money in order to buy my children things that would be useful,” Abdulhameed said, “Islamic Relief did great work and made tremendous efforts to reach and help us with our daily struggles in this holy month by providing this food basket.”
With your donations, families like Abdulhameed’s are given the blessing of one less thing to worry about during Ramadan. Please, give the gift of food this Ramadan and be a light for families in Yemen.
