Yemen

Yemen

Yemen is currently the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. As the conflict continues relentlessly for its fourth straight year, more than 22 million people are in urgent need, according to the U.N. To put this into context, about three-quarters of the total population need humanitarian aid and protection. Although the crisis has been going on for years, the destruction and devastation on the population is increasing at an alarming rate. For example, just last year, the percentage of civilians in poverty was 49%, but recently, this number has jumped to 79% in 2018 alone.

More than 1.1 million suspected cholera cases have been recorded in Yemen since April 2017. There have been two major waves of cholera epidemics in recent years, and all signs show that a third wave could break out soon. Baitulmaal has taken the first step to prepare for this outbreak, so that we are there in time of emergency. We have taken the initiative to send a 1.5 million dollar medical shipment containing 100,000 doses of antibiotics, which will be used to combat the infectious disease.

According to a report, UNICEF stated that at least one child dies every 10 minutes in Yemen because of malnutrition, diarrhea, and respiratory tract infection.

“The state of health of children […] has never been as catastrophic as it is today.”

Children in Yemen are in dire need of assistance. They are suffering under the cogs of severe malnutrition. The latter is a major cause of death for children under the age of five. Your help will help save these kids from starvation. Please consider donating toward this humanitarian cause.

Recent Updates:

Over the years, Baitulmaal has been working through local partner organizations implementing seasonal projects such as Ramadan food baskets, and Udhiyah meat distribution, to help alleviate poverty and hunger in the area. Since the onset of the current humanitarian crisis Baitulmaal has been sending emergency humanitarian assistance inside Yemen. Baitulmaal continues to provide assistance to the displaced families in Yemen in the form of food, clothing, medical supplies, and more.
