Our mission

The humanitarian situation in Yemen is deteriorating by the hour. The escalating conflict has put millions of people at risk and has led to some of the worst situation of hunger and malnutrition in the world. It is a problem that requires the aid and assistance of people working together to alleviate these conditions. The Yemeni community works tirelessly to help their families and friends in the troubled country. Friends and colleagues who worked or still working with international projects decided to establish a newly named voluntary non-profit local organisation.

Yemen Friends is a Yemeni voluntary organisation that aims to help the most war affected families in Yemen with food baskets and to bring a little happiness into the lives of many families.

  • We are providing immediate assistance to areas severely affected by the ongoing war in Yemen.
  • We are mainly focused on providing financial assistance to support the work of the volunteers inside Yemen who are in the field tending the injured, distributing medical supplies and providing food baskets to the most war affected families in Yemen.
  • We also strive to provide monthly food supplies as well as food trucks for individuals and families in the form of basic and essential staples such as rice, flour and oil.


What we do

Food packages, vouchers and direct cash are the most effective and efficient instruments to provide fast relief. Over the next few weeks and months, we will be working with our local partners to:

Food for Displaced Families

Distribute food packages for displaced families who had been forced to move from their homes in Taiz and Haja, and are currently living in Sana’a.

Food for Neighbours

Distribute food packages for displaced neighbours, family members and friends who are struggling to meet basic needs, and facing hunger on a daily basis.

Food Vouchers

Distribute food vouchers to families whose homes were destroyed in the conflict. These vouchers will give families access to wheat, rice, oil, beans and sugar to feed them for 4 months.

Small Cash Transfers

Cash money transfer to poor families who are struggling to provide food for their families.

Cholera Medical Aid

Cholera is affecting every part of the country and health facilities are struggling to cope. We support with cholera medical aid to the affected.

Winter Clothing

We provide winter clothing to orphan children during the cold season of the year.


Just imagine your own child or loved one dying right in front of your eyes due to malnutrition or preventable causes.
