Down below is some information about the heartbreaking inhuman conditions the brother and sisters of Yemen are facing.
The Prophet (saw) said, ‘The best of men are the men of Yemen, belief is Yemeni, and I am Yemeni’. (Ahmad)
The people of Yemen were directly blessed by the Prophet Muhammad (saw) - but these blessed people are currently suffering from ‘the worst man-made humanitarian crisis of our time’.
Yemen has suffered huge instability and violence following the Arab Spring in 2011. Nationwide protests led to civil strife and an eventual government coup. Airstrikes followed in early 2015, and total war ensued.
Several years on and over a hundred thousand civilians have been killed according to the United Nations. At least 3.2 million Yemenis have been displaced, and 14 million out of the 27 million population are estimated to be in need of food assistance.
The economy and infrastructure of what was already the poorest country in the Middle East are today in ruins. Worse still, a deadly famine has been sparked leaving thousands of children in several of Yemen’s provinces facing a slow death.
Now, the coronavirus pandemic is threatening vulnerable families even more. With half of all health facilities damaged or unable to function we urgently need you to donate food, medical care, and clean water to Yemen to help them cope with the coronavirus crisis.
Any donations towards this cause would be highly appreciated by both us, and our brothers and sisters of Yemen. JazakAllah Khair for your time.
