A War Torn country, a famine state, the fate of 18.8 million people rest on the equal balance of International Aid and Relief to supply essential life sustaining support to those lives affected by preventable causes.
Cholera. Conflict. Famine. Economic Decline. Every day, millions of Yemenis face unspeakable hardship
- Amelia Kunert, RI
In Yemen today:
• 18.8 million people — nearly the entire population — need assistance to survive.
• 17.8 million Yemenis do not have reliable access to food
• 16.4 million people lack access to adequate healthcare
• 7.5 million people require nutritional assistance
A child dies every 10 minutes in Yemen from preventable causes, according to a UN figure. The single most alarming threat to the innocent lives of 462,000 Yemeni children, Malnutrition, the result of flagrant famine which has already shocked more than half of the Yemen's under-five population.
Yemen is facing it's largest ever humanitarian crisis. Ordinary people are bearing the brunt of an increasingly brutal conflict. According to the UN, an estimated 18.8 million people - 69% of Yemen's population - needs some kind of humanitarian or protection assistance.
The crisis in Yemen offers no respite. Children are the most affected. Over 2.2 million children in Yemen are severely malnourished.
More than 50,000 children expected to die of starvation and disease by end of year.
The child in the images shown below, a prime example of the devastating effects of acute malnutrition. Udai Faisal, the starving baby who died at five months old shows devastating humanitarian consequences of Yemen civil war.
One of the last pictures of baby Udai Faisal show him in his mother’s arms.
The little boy’s sunken eyes stare from their sockets, as feeding tubes wind around his skeletal face and body, swaddled in a blanket.
He died days later, finally breaking down under the ravages of malnutrition in Yemen.
Our goal at Abrar Relief is to provide basic humanitarian supplies to the families most affected from the dire consequences of famine and the Saudi Arabia-led war & coalition on restrictions to aid and essential supplies.
The children of these families are the most directly affected and they require our immediate assistance to bring the chance of life back to their arms.
All donations of any amount will be highly appreciated and insured in the final and direct aid of Yemeni children suffering severe acute malnutrition.
Our target is to supply aid to humanitarian camps that supply hygiene packs and essential food & clean, safe drinking water to those admitted within health centres in areas most affected.
Time is against our hands and the fate of the children of Yemen is rapidly reducing every minute.
A Global Emergency
Insha'Allah we see the smiles of the children who are nursed back to health with the aid of your humanitarian response.
