Yemen seems to be on the verge of total collapse. - UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
The increase in fighting is taking a heavy toll on the civilian population. More than 70 children have been killed.
As the fighting in Yemen flares up, the nation is on the brink of a humanitarian disaster. More than 100,000 people have fled their homes. The death toll continues to rise daily, with at least 500 dead and 1,700 wounded just in the past two weeks. Already the most impoverished nation in the Middle East, Yemen, with a population of 24 million, is also one of the most water-scarce countries in the world. According to the United Nations, the continuing conflict has increasingly “disrupted water supplies in areas of southern Yemen…with sewage overflowing in some areas, raising the risk of disease.”
To respond to this crisis, United Muslim Relief is working on the ground providing essential food aid to hundreds of families in need. Working alongside wholesalers, we are providing essential food vouchers to internally displaced people in and around Aden. With these vouchers families will be able to sustain themselves for a month.
For just $100, you can help feed an entire family for a month.
