Relief for Yemen

Yemen, one of the world's poorest countries, has been torn apart by conflict since 2014. This war has led to the displacement of many yemeni people, and more importantly has triggered a humanitarian disaster.

Before the war began, the country was already struggling with almost half of the population in poverty. This war has now resulted in one of the world's worst humanitarian disasters.

Statistics:

• At least one child dies every 10 minutes in Yemen because of preventable diseases such as diarrhea, malnutrition and respiratory tract infections (UNICEF, December 2016)

• 14 million people are food insecure, including more than 7 million don't know where their next meal will come from ( UNOCHA, December 2016)

• More than 2 million children in Yemen are acutely malnourished and require urgent care, including more than least 460,000 suffering from severe acute malnutrition — an increase of almost 200% since 2014

• 2.2 million people have been displaced during the con ict (UNHCR, December 2016)

• Only 45% of health care facilities are partially or fully functioning (UNOCHA, December 2016)

• Only 1/3 of the country has access to health care (UNICEF, December 2016)

• The governorate of Sa’ada has the world’s highest stunting rates amongst children with an unprecedented eight out of 10 children in some areas being chronically malnourished. (UNICEF, December 2016)

All of the money raised here will be donated to Islamic Relief and their mission to help Yemen. They have countless projects that focus on providing water, food, medicine, and other resources to those in need. I will link their site below if you want to read more on their specific projects and the amount of people they have reached.

Please donate in order to help those who suffer far more than any of us. Its our duty to help those in need! If you cant donate yourself, then please spread awareness and ask others to donate too!
