Yemen Crisis Appeal
Yemen is the poorest country in the Middle East, torn apart by conflict and gripped by hunger. More than 7 million people in Yemen do not know where their next meal will come from and children are dying from malnutrition.
A staggering 18.8 million are in need of assistance. With your support we can provide urgent life-saving aid.
Children under 5 are on the brink of dying
- Millions of people are at risk of starvation in Yemen
- 3 million children, pregnant women and new mothers are acutely malnourished
- 462,000 of these are children under 5 and on the brink of dying
Abdulrahman (pictured), from Hodeida in Yemen, suffered from Severe Acute Malnutrition since birth. At 12 months old he only weighed 3.3kg. Abdulrahman is one of the fortunate ones; we were able to enrol him onto a nutrition programme just over 6 months ago at a health centre supported by Islamic Relief.
Alhamdulillah, many children like AbdulRahman are getting the help they need, but millions are still in desperate need. 14.4 million people in Yemen lack access to sufficient nutritious food.
Islamic Relief is on the ground in 18 of the country’s 22 governorates and so far have been able to reach millions of people, but we can do more. That’s why, as a member of the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), we are supporting their Yemen Crisis Appeal.
For just £25 you could provide a month’s supply of life-saving peanut paste to a malnourished child. Please donate now and help save lives.
