Yemen, which has already been declared by UNICEF to be in the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, is collapsing further due to the COVID-19 pandemic...
Here’s what’s happening, what we’re doing, and how you can help…
Families have experienced more than five years of war, widespread displacement, a crippled economy, near-famine conditions, severe floods and multiple health crises — including outbreaks of cholera, dengue fever and diphtheria.
All these factors have destroyed Yemen’s healthcare system but the addition of COVID-19 has made the collapse complete.
Political unrest and groups fighting for power have broken the food supply chain. There is a lack of proper infrastructures like hospitals, schools, and weather plants.
The conditions are so bad that according to the United Nations, a child under the age of five dies every 10 minutes of preventable causes.
80% of the population depends on humanitarian assistance for food, water, shelter, and medicine … including 12 million children.
Hospitals don’t even have the basics like gloves and masks. Food prices, alone, have doubled in the past month.
This is a desperate situation … will you please help?
We’re raising money to help the people and the children of Yemen…
Our goal is to raise $100,000, and ALL donations great and small are welcome, as we must work together to help these people. The money will be donated to two amazing charities already on the ground: Unicef Yemen and Save The Children Yemen.
Seriously, anything helps, ALL donations are so much appreciated … thank you for your support!
