It is 2017, and Yemen, the poorest country in the Middle East anyway, is going through the worse humanitrian crisis on the face of the earth. This has been brewing for 2 years due to the civil unrest and the bombs being dropped by Saudi Arabia and the USA.
Imagine a country that sells arms to the KSA to drop bombs on Yemen, but then sends aid to that same country that is being bombed. This is what the UK is doing.
MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS HARDLY COVERING THE HUMANITARIAN CRISIS TAKING PLACE IN YEMEN.
Yemen is also breaking records, and is set to beat Haiti in its number of cholera outbreak by Nov 2017. Yemen is going to hit the million mark, whereas Haiti had half a million people affected by cholera. Yemen is set to hold the record soon for the worse cholera outbreak in the world. THE FASTEST GROWING EPIDEMIC IN HISTORY OF THIS MODERN WORLD.
Where is the public outcry? why has Yemen become the forgotten country, the forgotten war, the forgotten people?
Why are people going through a famine crisis in 2017? where is the awarenessbeing raised for this civil unrest in Yemen?
There are no planes that fly into Yemen, the airport is closed. Which makes getting valuable resources into the country difficult.
We need to right to our MP's, our senates, we need to let the fucking world know what the fuck is going on in Yemen. This is unacceptable.
Imagine a population the size of Washington DC going through famine, severe cholera outbreak, this is Yemen.
18M are in need of a humanitarian assistance.
14.5M do not have access to water
7M are being threatened by famine.
3.3M children and women are suffering some sort of maternal health problem.
YEMEN IS DYING A SLOW DEATH, A SLOW DEATH THAT THE WORLD HAS FORGOTTEN ABOUT.
Aim of this project:
- All funds raised will be sent to Pure Hands, an NGO based inside of Yemen and is on the ground, delivering aid and assistance.
- funds will be used to purchase hygiene packs to tackle the spread of cholera, alongside food and water.
BEST CASE SCENARIO: IF WE COULD FIND AN AIRLINE WILLING TO TAKE AID INTO YEMEN. however, we know this might not be possible as due to the civil unrest, no airlines are flying into Yemen and San'a International Airport is Closed. Making the ports the only way to get aid in.
LETS RAISE AWARENESS OF THIS CRISIS.
