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:
Just imagine your own child or loved one dying right in front of your eyes due to malnutrition or preventable causes.
Your donation will truly make a difference to the lives of many people in Yemen! We completely depend on your donations to achieve our goals. The donations will be solely used through socially recognised NGOs & local initiatives in Yemen.
