Yemen: 6 Years of the world's worst Humanitarian Crisis and How You Can Help

For six long years, a devastating Civil War has been raging in Yemen. More than 4 million people have been displaced from their homes and more than 20 million are in desperate need of humanitarian assistance. Tens of thousands are living in famine, the numbers are truly terrifying, yet it only grows worse.

The Crisis

Yemen’s Civil War began in 2015 due to the rivalry between Yemeni government forces and the Houthis. This was the start of the devastating conflict and 6 years of terror, of homes being destroyed, families torn apart, food and water shortages and economic decline, leaving 66 percent of the population in dire need of humanitarian assistance. 

Women and children are bearing the worst side of this crisis. They add up to 79 percent of the displaced population and are finding themselves becoming head of households but unable to provide for their families.

Meanwhile, Yemeni children are continuously being killed and severely injured as one child dies every ten minutes. This is due to both disease and malnourishment. One child in four is now acutely malnourished. 

Tens of thousands of other children are at risk of severe acute malnutrition and even death without urgent treatment. Many of these children die before they reach their fifth birthday.  This is a tragedy that’s only getting worse.

"Saving One Life Is As If Saving Whole Of Humanity…”

 – Quran 5:32
