Yemen Emergency

The horrific conflict and humanitarian crisis in Yemen has reached unspeakable limits.

In the midst of intensified attacks, stark famine, and a cholera epidemic, civilians are paying a devastating price.

5 million children are especially at risk for starvation, dangerously on the edge of mass deaths.

With hospitals and schools damaged and water in very short supply, immediate action is needed.

Help provide urgent relief and save a life today.

How we get help into Yemen

Our teams in Yemen work diligently to procure supplies locally, especially in the face of skyrocketing food prices. They continuously work on making this aid available through distributions to those most in need.

In times of extreme famine and conflict, we prioritize water, food and health supplies to assist with life-saving relief efforts.

Islamic Relief is on the ground in 18 of the country’s 22 governorates, providing medical support and urgent food aid. Please donate now and help us reach those who desperately await our care.


Crisis Summary

With the ongoing conflict in Yemen thousands of lives have been lost and millions left in turmoil in a country on the brink of famine. With recent attacks on ports disrupting the distribution of aid, further displacement is expected along the western coast and the crisis is intensifying.

Families and communities have been torn apart and left without even the most basic of living essentials:

  • Around two million people are displaced and living in dire conditions
  • Approximately 18 million people have been left food insecure
  • In 2017, the WHO and UNICEF classed the Cholera crisis in Yemen as the worst outbreak ever recorded

Just $60 can provide food and clean water to a family for a month.
