Yemen Update

The Ashraful Aid continues to delivere meals and food parcels to the people of Yemen in an attempt to combat widespread starvation. We have also contributed to water and sanitation projects which aim to ease the situations in refugee camps.

In Yemen, a majority of the population – approximately two thirds – is in dire need of humanitarian assistance while an additional 14 million are in need of other kinds of assistance. Millions are on the brink of starvation and dehydration, while millions more have been displaced. Public infrastructure has been in gradual decline, and, at present, only approximately half of the health centres and hospitals in the country are functional, and access to medication and medical equipment remains severely limited. Refugee camps are overpopulated and the limited infrastructure cannot sustain the millions of men, women, and children who have been left destitute by this crisis.

The political situation in Yemen remains precarious as coalitions and groups struggle for power over certain regions of the country, affecting the lives of civilians.

Food insecurity, coupled with health issues such as constant cholera outbreaks and the coronavirus, as well as weak governance all allow for the humanitarian crisis in Yemen to be classified as the worst in the world.

As the pandemic rages on and the crisis in Yemen only gets worse, we appeal to you to donate to our causes. Ashraful Aid is currently running a drive to address food insecurity. $40/R600 can provide food for an entire family for a month. The Yemeni people are in desperate need of your assistance and your donations will help ease the trials and tribulations faced by the people of Yemen.
