The situation in Yemen is intensifying – help us provide emergency aid through your donations today
Yemen: The world’s worst humanitarian crisis
Scenes in Yemen look apocalyptic. Many cities have been destroyed. Children roam the streets, rummaging through the trash, picking out anything they can eat or sell.
Their lives have been turned upside down.
- 19.7 million people need basic healthcare
- Almost 18 million people are in need of water and sanitation facilities
- Over 3 million people have been left displaced by conflict
Water, food and electricity are running out fast, and diseases like cholera and covid-19 are ravishing the population in Yemen.
Quite simply, Yemen won’t be able to cope with a severe outbreak of covid-19 (coronavirus). It will be catastrophic for an already malnourished population. If wealthy countries are struggling to cope with the coronavirus outbreak, can you imagine how Yemen will fear?
80% of Yemen’s population – 24 million – are in urgent need of your support.
12.2 million children are in danger and 85,000 children under 5 have sadly died due to malnutrition.
That’s the equivalent of every child under 5 in the city of Birmingham, dieing. A child is dying a preventable death every ten minutes.
Mercy Relief is a specialist charity operating in Yemen. Yemenis are our first and only priority right now.
We’re on the ground working tirelessly to protect the most vulnerable.
However, there is so much more to do – and time is running out.
Support our Yemen emergency appeal today
We need your support to help us continue providing essential life-saving aid, especially in Ramadan. Families simply have no food or medicine, which means that if we stop, people will die.
Thanks to your donations our response has allowed us to support countless families.
But a whole generation is still at risk. No more Yemenis need to die. They just need food to live.
Help us continue to support those suffering from the devastating effects of this conflict. With the scare of coronavirus, we can’t afford to wait any longer.
You can provide emergency relief to Yemen today. Help us give food and medical supplies to help these vulnerable people live another day.
