Yemen: the world’s most urgent humanitarian crisis

Five years of unrelenting conflict has destroyed Yemen and had a brutal effect on it’s people.

More than 10 million Yemeni’s are suffering from extreme hunger and malnutrition. A lack of clean water and basic medication has caused an outbreak of cholera every ten minutes. Now the COVID-19 pandemic threatens an already fragile healthcare system.

This is the worst man-made humanitarian crisis of our time and it is essential that we act now, before things get worse.

With your generous support, Muslim Hands is already on the ground, providing emergency relief in the worst affected areas.

We are committed to the long-term future and stability of Yemen and are establishing fully equipped mobile health clinics in rural areas and providing regular meals for school children.

We are also constructing wells and rehabilitating existing ones to provide hundreds of families with safe clean water.

The people of Yemen desperately need your support in order to survive another day. Every minute counts. There is no time to waste. Act now and save lives.

Our Work in Yemen

Fighting Famine with Our Bread Factory

“Bread is a staple food we take for granted but in Yemen it can save lives.  For many Yemenis the bread factory will provide the only meal they will have in the day. This basic item will stop thousands of people starving.” [Abdul Rahman Hussein, Country Director Yemen Programmes]

As a response to widespread famine and malnutrition, we have opened two bread factories in the cities of Aden and Ma’rib. 

 

These factories support food-insecure families by baking 6,000 loaves each daily providing bread for 3,000 beneficiaries every day in each location.

With your help, we can alleviate hunger and provide stability and normality to communities that have been devastated by years of conflict.

Yemen Health Crisis: Medical Clinics

More than half of all health facilities in Yemen are damaged or unable to function, leaving millions without access to the vital treatment they need. Today, Yemen's healthcare is now largely dependent on outside aid. 

Years of conflict have exacerbated the collapse of Yemen's public health system, leaving the population to grapple with cholera, diphtheria, malnutrition, conflict-related injuries and now the COVID19 pandemic.

Our health clinics in Lahj are providing vulnerable families in rural villages with healthcare, medicine and nutrition services, including prioritizing pregnant women and children for nutrition testing. We are also providing medical awareness sessions to help families better care for themselves.

Your donations are urgently needed to help us continue implementing these projects. It is unacceptable that children are dying of preventable illnesses in Yemen right now, and it is our responsibility to put an end to this tragedy.

Providing Safe Water in Yemen

Before the spread of COVID-19, Yemen was already dealing with a severe cholera outbreak, made worse by the lack of accessible, clean drinking water. Nearly a third of all cholera cases were children under the age of 5. Access to safe drinking water can prevent cholera and other diseases from spreading in vulnerable communities.

With your help we’re able to build solar-powered wells and rehabilitate existing water systems, bringing water to local communities who are well educated in well maintenance, guaranteeing them clean water for the future.

 

Our upcoming plans include restoring wells in various camps and villages to support upwards of 75,000 Yemenis in Lahj, Marib, Shabowa, Al Dhale’e and Taiz.

These wells will mean people don’t have to walk for miles just for a bucket of contaminated water – they will truly transform the lives of thousands.
