The World’s Worst Humanitarian Crisis

After seven years of conflict, Yemen is one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises. Around 23.7 million people are in need of dire humanitarian assistance, including nearly 13 million children. Nearly 6 million people have been uprooted from their homes as violence, collapsing services, and threats of large-scale famine have taken over the country. Despite humanitarian aid, a staggering 17.4 million Yemenis remain food insecure. If immediate action isn’t taken, this number is expected to rise to 19 million by December 2022. Covid-19 has only exacerbated the crisis, weakening people’s immune systems as they fight the virus as well as other preventable diseases including cholera, diphtheria, measles, and dengue fever. 

Women and children are bearing the brunt of the crisis. Malnutrition rates among women and children remain one of the highest in the world. Today, 1.3 million mothers and 2.2 million children under the age of five require treatment for acute malnutrition. 


From 2020 to 2021, Islamic Relief was on the ground in Yemen. With support from donors like you, we were able to help over 150,000 mothers and children lower malnutrition rates. A total of 150 local health facilities were equipped with staff to treat patients; nearly 90 facilities were provided with medicines and medical supplies; and over 1,000 educational sessions were conducted to improve the knowledge and skills among health workers and volunteers.

Islamic Relief’s Dedication to Yemen

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. Notable charities depend on Islamic Relief to deliver their aid due to our work across the provinces.

A few of our ongoing projects include:

  • Life-saving food aid
  • Access to clean water and sanitation
  • Sustainable livelihood efforts
  • Emergency health response for cholera
  • Emergency aid for internally displaced people
  • Winter aid

We Need YOUR Help

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.
