Yemen: the world’s largest humanitarian crisis

Every ten minutes, a child under five in Yemen dies of preventable causes

16 million people lack access to safe water and sanitation

10 million Yemenis are at risk of famine

Five years of unrelenting conflict has destroyed Yemen and had a brutal effect on its 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 and every ten minutes.

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.

I am Yemeni, and so are you

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, ’The best of men are the men of Yemen, belief is Yemeni and I am Yemeni…’ [Ahmad].

Yemen holds a special place in the heart of the Prophet (saw) and has important roots in the history of Islam.

The Prophet (saw) descended from Yemen and was sheltered by the people of Yemen during his time of struggle.

Yemen is also mentioned several times in the Quran and two surahs are dedicated to the land of Yemen: Al Saba and Al Ahqaf.

#IamYemeni is a campaign to raise awareness for the people of Yemen. As part of the campaign we have collated and published a hadith collection titled “40 Ahadith about the Virtues of Yemen and its People” and we would like to take the opportunity to explain the story behind the hashtag and hadith collection.

Fighting famine: Yemen bread factory

As a response to widespread famine and malnutrition, Muslim Hands has opened two bread factories in the cities of Aden and Ma’rib 

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

"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.

All the running costs of the project are covered by Muslim Hands, and with our donors supporting they are helping to alleviate hunger, provide stability and normality to communities that have been devastated by years of conflict". [Abdul Rahman Hussein, Country Director Yemen Programmes]
