Hello dear friends, my name is Kate (Twitter: @cmqkate) from Germany! Since long time I know my good friend Hassan Khader Ali (Twitter: @hassankhaderali), who is living in a small district of the Al Hudaydah Governorate in Yemen.

Beside the very bad circumstances caused by war, starvation and poverty, he is suffering of a genetic disorder, called Muscle Dystrophy (MD). This disease damage and weaken his muscles over time. The MD results in the breakdown of skeletal muscles, so that it causes problems with walking, swallowing and muscle coordination. In some cases, it even leads to failure of the heart muscle and lungs, so that the affected suffocate. Since long time Hassan can't stand or walk anymore. He is not able to take care of himself or to leave the house by himself. So he lives isolated from the world outside. He is glad to have his brother, who tries to help him in everyday life as best as he can. As many people in Yemen also his family is really poor.

I talked to different humanitarian organizations to get some help, but unfortunately they doesn't feel responsible for an individual case, they said. So we hope to get some support by you in any way!

Until now MD is incurable. But I consulted a neurologists here in Germany and he recommended some issues we could do to improve the quality of Hassan's life. Apart from the lack of food (especially with high-protein/-calcium) and elecricity, gas for cooking by his family members, a new medical examination at a specialist (his reports are 18 yrs old), a medical diagnostic to monitor the progress of the disease and his constitution (e.g. by heart muscle and lung function test) and aid supplies (e.g. a wheel chair, hand grips inside the house), would help him. I hope we can raise enough, so that we can organize these issues for him.

I would really appreciate it, if you would help me to support Hassan! The situation became more worst in Yemen and he got more weak. Also because of missing good and healthy food which is rare available and even really expensive in these days. So every little amount you can donate would help to give him new hope despite this serious disease and also improve his quality of life as it’s possible in war! Be sure it will safely reach him!

Even any other way to help him would be great and I would really appreciate that.

You can always contact me or Hassan (if he has internet access) by direct message, if you have any further questions.

Thanks from my heart,
Kate ❤️
