Once in Yemen we will be posting stories and photos of the progress to update everyone on where their donations are going and how they are being used.
The situation In Yemen is an ongoing story of tragedy, the conflict has caused hundreds of thousands to lose their lives and millions to lose the basic human rights which includes the issue of starvation and disease outbreaks; with no access to much needed medicine to treat major outbreaks like the cholera breakout in 2017 thousands passed because of it and it still affects many till this day: without proper medicine the situation will only get worse. The situation continues to deteriorate every passing year, over 50,000 children were believed to have died in 2017 alone.
Having witnessed the conflict in Yemen first hand it was heart-breaking to see children as young as 3 years of age on the streets begging for as little as 1 yemeni rial which does not even convert to 1p, women with babies that were barely a couple of months old sat in the middle of streets pleading with any passers by to help them feed their families, the price of healthcare is simply unaffordable for most and most are forced to go out in any public place they can to plead with people to give them anything that may help them with getting closer to the healthcare they are much in need of.
Routinely every night there are air raids that would shake the entire city, whilst many are killed there are children who have been orphaned due to losing their entire families, we can’t imagine the pain of losing a sibling or even a parent but imagine losing every family member in less than 5 minutes with you being the only person left to identify the unidentifiable bodies of every dear person you have ever loved. Millions of children have been left orphaned because of the war and with the conflict not improving there is only more to come but we can help by providing those in need with the aids to help them survive.
17 million people (over 60% of the population) do not know when they will have their next meal, with over 7 million on the verge of famine. More than 2 million children in Yemen are acutely malnourished and require urgent care. Only 45% of healthcare facilities are believed to be operation however of those 45% many lack the resources including medication to treat those with severe conditions or even life threatening diseases, at least 1 child dies every 10 minutes in Yemen due to the lack of health resources or even the poverty that swoops through Yemen with most unable to afford anything other than a single piece of bread for their entire families.
This fundraising page was primarily inspired by what we witnessed in yemen and we plan to return to Yemen in the year 2019 through to 2020 to aid every person that we can through this project, we have started this page quite early in order to make the most of the given time and raise as much as we can, many raise thousands in a couple of months, however, imagine the amount that can be raised in a year, the project is 100% NON- PROFITABLE, the people deserve to have something positive rather than the corruption they have been forced to endure since the beginning of the war and even before.
We plead with anyone who can to help raise any funds to do so, donating £5 may seem like nothing however collectively it will account to something much greater.
The funds raised will go towards helping families have access to water, food and any healthcare many need, we will also be helping to support many people displaced by the war by providing clothes, food, blankets, and any other necessities they may need. Another major issue is the starvation and malnutrition of children and the poor conditions of those in hospitals so we will be visiting hospitals to provide any support we are able to.
The aidforyemen2019 campaign/ project will ensure that the voice of those that is too quiet to be heard will be heard by someone whereby they will be attended to personally, the campaign will consist of members who know the majority of those living in different areas, we will be not only be attending to the big cities but even small villages that are not attended to.
Our plan is to either have volunteering members go and work for the year in yemen from 2019 through to 2020 or gather a team once in yemen to take part in this project, most of our members will have personal ties to the country so they will ensure that we make the most of every penny we have, we have set up the campaign a year early in order for us to raise as much as we can, our aim is for £10,000 in a year which will help thousands, with every donation we get a step closer.
