Food & Medicine For Yemeni Families
Thank you to all of our donors who have helped Mona volunteers deliver aid since March of 2015. We recently provided GoFundMe with the banking paper trail showing that all of your donations are reaching Mona Relief in Yemen. Remember, no amount is too great, or too small to help save a life.
YOUR DONATIONS IN 2018 - MONA VOLUNTEERS DELIVERING FOOD & SUPPLIES.
Please take a moment to learn about the devistating cholera out break in Yemen, due to contaminated water, and the lethal rate this preventable disease is spreading. -> Click here to read the article by Fatik al-Rodaini. <-
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 hardest hit areas, and bringing smiles to little ones' faces.

The benefit of donating though GoFundMe to a Yemeni charity is that nearly 100% of your money (minus small gofundme fee) is used to purchase life-saving food and supplies, that will be hand-delivered to the families in communities where children are suffering terribly from lack of food, warm clothing and medicine. This campaign receives donations in Canadian currency. Yemen uses Euro dollar. The currency exchange rate is an element we have no control over. Please keep in mind that the Canadian Dollar equates to approx. 70 cents on the Euro Dollar . But please, do not let this discourage your donating funds equivalent to the Canadian dollar.
“The children of Yemen need urgent help and they need it now,” UNICEF Representative Julien Harneis stressed, calling for unhindered access to areas where civilians are dying without functioning hospitals, where medicines are in short supply and children are at risk of dying from preventable diseases.
“Continuous bombardment and street fighting are exposing children and their families to a deadly combination of violence, disease and deprivation,” Mr. Harneis said, sounding the alarm on behalf of the conflict’s most vulnerable.

For some children, the trauma is deep, and they have lost their homes and smiles.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.
Children should not be forced to live in a cave, yet they do. Mona's compassionate and brave volunteers are bringing warm jackets, bedding and smiles to these little ones.
Here you see Fatik, founder of Mona surrounded by children who will now sleep under a warm blanket at night.
The small Republic of Yemen is overwhelmed by the critical humanitarian crisis of its people, and Yemen is desperately in need of public attention.
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.
