What we love about Yemen

Your country is United States so currency auto changed to US Dollars

 

Thank you Yemen

 

In the year 1990, Yemen was unified and became the country we know today. But before the time of countries and borders there were always distinct people that lived to the south of the Arabian Peninsula. The people we know today as the Yemeni people. They always had a worldly outlook. Facing the sea meant that they had contact with the great Abyssinian empires. They formed a sort of bridge between Africa and the Arab world.

 

This bridge gave the world coffee. An essential drink all over the world. We have the Yemenis to thank for Cafe Culture.

 

After your morning coffee the next thing to look forward to is lunch. Have you heard of Hadhramaut? Maybe you know it as the famous region of Yemen. Another thing Hadhramis are famous for is for exporting Yemeni cuisine to the world. You can find a Hadhramaut restaurant serving authentic Yemeni food in a range of diverse places including, Guangzhou, Manchester, Nairobi and New York. One thing that’s guaranteed in all of these restaurants is good food and the best welcome.

In recent times Yemen has been the poorest country in the region, especially compared to its oil rich neighbours. However this did not stop the Yemenis from welcoming their brothers to the south and north when wars broke out. Ethiopians, Syrians and Somalis were all welcomed to Yemen when their respective countries were going through a rough patch. Yemen is still a second home to thousands of migrants.

 

What do we love about Yemen? Just to mention three things, the coffee, cuisine and famous hospitality. These are some of the things that Yemen has contributed to our world.

 

Today the world needs to return the favour. We need to help our Yemeni brothers and sisters. With everything that is going on around us it’s easy to forget about the biggest humanitarian crisis of our time. Yemen needs you.

 

Every time you drink your morning coffee, spare a thought for the culture that popularised it and donate today to support our brothers and sisters, just as they would have supported any of us.
