Peace and blessings be upon you all!
I’m collecting donations for Human Needs Development-HND, a Yemeni nonprofit organization based in Sana'a, the capital of Yemen.
HND aims to prevent and alleviate the suffering of the most vulnerable people in Yemen in the face of absence of human life’s basic needs such as foods, water, education and health. They help Yemeni people regardless their different religions, sects, colors and regions.
WHAT IS FEED YEMEN?
FEED YEMEN is HND's relief campaign that aims to help the most war affected families in Yemen with food baskets.
Every food basket costs $30 and will be sufficient for ONE month.
Every food basket contains the following:
25 kg of wheat,
5 kg of rice,
5 kg of sugar and
2 liters of cooking (vegetable) oil
The people and children in Yemen are suffering with many war consequences such as displacement, lack of water, no good medical care. BUT hunger is the worst consequences they have been facing. So helping them with foods is the most fundamental and urgent humanitarian assistance the people in Yemen need.
HND’s team decided to spend ALL your donations collected here to help the Yemeni people with foods because of the following reasons:
-There is an estimated 18 MILLION people in Yemen suffering with food insecurity;
-600,000 children are acutely malnourished;
-About 130 children die every day in Yemen because of hunger and diseases (UNICEF);
-About 8 MILLION people are facing FAMINE;
-50,000 children believed to have died in only 2017 because of extreme hunger and diseases.
ONE CHILD DIES EVERY 10 MINUTES IN YEMEN BECAUSE OF HUNGER AND DISEASES (UNICEF)
HOW MY DONATIONS WILL BE USED?
All the amounts collected here will be sent to Yemen on a monthly basis. That means HND’s team will carry out a stage per month.
Every ONE month, they will target new Yemeni areas, communities and families. Priority is given to those families with big number of members; disabled householders; most of their members are females, internally displaced and those families who don't have any income resources.
All funds would be collected here will be used as the following:
85%: Purchasing food baskets,
Food baskets will be purchased from local food suppliers near the living locations of the needy families;
10%: Transporting fees (trucks) and office supplies,
(7%) will be used to cover the trucks costs. Trucks will transport the food baskets into the living locations of the targeted families. (3%) to cover our Office supplies such as calls, papers etc.
5%: Gofundme and Wire Transfer Fees.
(6%) fees taken by Gofundme platform website and other wire transferring services.
HOW DO I KNOW MY MONEY WILL GO TO FEED THE FAMILIES?
To let you know where your contributions are used, HND will ensure that in a number of different ways:
- Publication of all photos, videos and financial documents,
Posting all of the photos and videos of the stages’ distribution processes as updates here.
- Email you Final Reports:
Send you an email with a Final Report that contains all the details of every stage such as budget, activities, food distribution framework etc.
I will also post updates here on the GoFundMe as to when I send out the monthly payout of donations to HND, the amount, and a confirmation from HND of their receipt.
SOME OF HND'S ACHIEVEMENTS
Since HND's establishment on 2016, we successfully have launched over 90 projects in most Yemeni urban and rural areas. Here are some pictures for some achieved project by HND.
A small amount of $10 will help us feed ALL members of one hungry family for 10 days!
This is an opportunity to give directly to the people of Yemen, the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.
PLEASE, come and join this movement against hunger and help HND save the lives of many hungry, malnourished children and people in Yemen!
