> Yemen emergency appeal
Empowerment and change through multi-educational assistance for the most vulnerable in Yemen.
As the conflict escalates in Yemen with no end in sight, the UN reports that 80% of the population is in need of acute humanitarian aid, 12 million are children. More than 20 million Yemenis are at risk with many being forced into a life of poverty and famine. With limited access to basic needs, the fight for survival – especially during a global pandemic – is a real one.
For the children of Yemen, the survival against armed conflict, abuse, diseases, malnutrition and poverty are everyday tests of life they need to pass just to stay alive. Deprived of all of life’s most basic needs including education, two million children are out of school and many are at risk of falling into famine.
Education is the key that will unlock all doors of opportunity for these young lives and will become their most valuable asset. Education is our biggest weapon in the fight against poverty.
Now, the pandemic has created a new emergency within an already escalating humanitarian crisis. Your generosity and support are essential for the survival of the people of Yemen. Through your zakat and sadaqah, we are working tirelessly to ensure that your donations are reaching those most in need.
Help us make sure that not a single vulnerable child in Yemen is forgotten. Be the difference. Help now.
> What we're doing
An education not only provides children with the tools they need to navigate life, lifting them out of poverty - it also protects children, providing them with a safe space and purpose.
Our Emergency Multi-Educational programme creates a path to childhood learning, access to basic WASH needs, community cohesion and inclusion. The programme also supports three schools in Yemen, providing them with:
► Breakfast meals and snacks for students
► Hygiene Kit distribution to students and training
► Sanitation systems
► Rehabilitated infrastructure and classroom replacements
► Building staff capacity
► Introduction of a psychosocial support programme
► Educational supplies such as textbooks
Help us reach as many children as we possibly can in this time of need.
