SANA’A, YEMEN April 29, 2024 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian nonprofit, recently distributed food packages that provided more than 485,350 meals to families in Yemen for the Ramadan season.

More than 9,000 people living in Sana’a, Ma’arib, Taiz, and Al-Hudaidah received food packages containing items such as rice, sugar, flour, dates, and cooking oil that helped provide daily meals during Ramadan.

According to Elora Bashir, program operations manager at Baitulmaal, 1,500 of these meals were hand-delivered as hot meals for families to break their fast with Baitulmaal.

“Due to ongoing poverty and hostility, families in Yemen have struggled to give their children adequate nutrition for years,” said Bashir. “This Ramadan, these families were blessed with the gift of food on the table thanks to our donors.”

According to the UN Refugee Agency, Yemen remains one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises. An estimated 21.6 million people are in dire need of humanitarian assistance. Over 2.2 million children are suffering from acute malnutrition, including over 540,000 children suffering from severe acute malnutrition.

In addition to providing Ramadan food packages, Baitulmaal has also provided fresh meat for Udhiyah, delivered more than $4 million in medical aid, constructed solar-powered water wells, and provided winter aid and hygiene kits in Yemen. To learn more about or contribute to these efforts, visit
