Yemen Emergency Response

Yemen Emergency Response

The New York Times is calling the situation in Yemen “the world’s worst humanitarian crisis” and lists Baitulmaal among highly rated charities providing aid

The United Nation’s 2018 Humanitarian Needs Overview estimates that 17.8 million Yemenis don’t know where their next meal will come from. Nearly half of those who are suffering from food insecurity are on the verge of starvation.

The decreasing availability of food and fuel is placing 32 percent of all the districts in Yemen at a heightened risk of sliding into famine. With markets and trade routes disrupted and a blockage choking off essential goods, the people of Yemen are in urgent need.

Will you give generously today to provide food and water for the people of Yemen?

The healthcare system of Yemen has also suffered. Only 50 percent of health facilities in high-risk districts are fully functional. This is leaving mothers, children and those suffering from illness without access to doctors, medicines and other healthcare resources.

On October 14, 2018, The Ministry of Public Health and Population of Yemen reported an astonishing 1.2 million suspected cases of cholera since April. During that same time, they estimate 2,510 cholera related deaths.

Baitulmaal is working with partners on the ground in Yemen to provide urgently needed food and medicine. Currently, we are planning to send 200 food basketscontaining flour, rice, sugar, beans and oil to displaced people within Yemen to alleviate food insecurity. We are also distributing 200 hygiene kits to push back against the cholera outbreak wreaking havoc on communities inside Yemen.

Can we count on your to support these urgent needs for displaced people in Yemen? Please make your most generous donation today.

Baitulmaal has already sent two shipments of antibiotics, personal care items, health screening tests and other medical supplies worth an estimated $1,260,000 to help the people of Yemen — and we need to send more aid as quickly as possible!

We urgently need your support to send life-saving food, medicine and supplies to alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people? Please give today.
