7223421_1549389418459894_r.jpegThe death toll and suffering of the Yemeni people is the world's greatest man-made humanitarian catastrophe in history. As an individual, we may not be able to stop the injustice and violence inflicted on innocent civilians, but we can try to prevent their starvation, and provide medicine and life-saving care packages.  

Due to the war, collapse of their government, and blockade on delivery of food or medicine into their country, the small Republic of Yemen is helpless to respond to the critical crisis of its people.
Unicef has reported that 1.8 million Yemeni children under the age of five suffer from acute malnutrition, and the lives of 400,000 severely affected children are under threat. In a recent report by Save the Children an estimated 85,000 children under the age of five have died from starvation.

The ONLY way to reach these children quickly is by donating to a charity located inside Yemen. The caring people at  Mona Relief Yemen  are defending children against the suffering inflicted on them.  Their volunteers are delivering lifesaving packages to the most vulnerable, and bringing smiles to little ones' faces.

 a Yemeni-based charity in operation since March 2015. Mona Relief is a registered and internationally recognized humanitarian aid and development organization. Their brave team of volunteers has partnered with both U.N., and major NGO's to successfully carry out hundreds of projects in the hardest hit areas of Yemen.

Many children have lost their smiles and homes as war rages on inside their country. Abdul Qader, a father of eight children told Fatik, founder of Mona about his daily sufferings in the cave, that he along with his family chose to move to for safety. “Ten months ago, I came to this place leaving behind my own house after it was hit by a mortar shell and half of my house was destroyed” he said. He added, “Thank God, I am still alive and none of my family members were injured.’’ Go here to read this article by Fatik Al-Rodaini
As a Canadian, raised in a humane society - I cannot in good conscience turn a blind eye to the trauma and agony these little ones have forced upon them - children are just children - no matter where they live.  A tax-exempt receipt will be provided upon request: Email Ms. Ferguson directly at: Leah@childrenofwar.ca.
