Yemen Crisis Update
The situation in Yemen reached crisis point when, following several months of fighting, over half a million people were forced to flee their homes in fear of their safety. Fighting has disrupted supplies of water, electricity and medicine. With barely any access to clean water of healthcare, diseases like malaria, meningitis and TB are spreading fast, and over a million people now need emergency treatment. On top of this, a severe food shortage has left 10 million hungry, and over half of Yemen’s children malnourished.
Islamic Relief has been working in Yemen for over a decade, so we were ready to answer the call immediately, helping those in desperate need all over the country.
