For over two decades, Islamic Relief has been a beacon of hope for the people of Yemen, a nation embroiled in a prolonged humanitarian crisis. Since 1998, Islamic Relief has worked to alleviate the suffering caused by various crises, including ongoing natural disasters and conflict that has devastated the lives of millions in Yemen. With a steadfast commitment to providing humanitarian aid and assistance, Islamic Relief’s presence in Yemen has made an indelible impact, offering hope in the darkest of times.


One of the most pressing issues facing Yemen is food insecurity. Islamic Relief has been at the forefront of tackling this challenge, ensuring vulnerable communities have access to nutritious meals. Through its comprehensive food assistance programs, Islamic Relief reaches those facing hunger, offering a lifeline to vulnerable communities struggling to meet their basic needs.


Yemen’s healthcare system is in a critical state with access to medical care becoming increasingly challenging for 7 million people. Islamic Relief recognizes this dire situation and has been providing vital medical support and supplies to healthcare facilities in Yemen. We support and sustain the operation of medical centres, ensuring that amid the conflict, Yemenis can access essential medical attention for injuries and illnesses.


Islamic Relief’s impact in Yemen extends beyond healthcare and food. Our teams on the ground are actively involved in addressing the water scarcity and inadequate hygiene conditions that many communities face. Through initiatives such as the construction and rehabilitation of water sources, installation of water tanks, and distribution of hygiene kits, Islamic Relief is enhancing access to clean water and promoting better hygiene practices, thereby improving the overall health and well-being of Yemeni families.


The crisis has taken a severe toll on Yemen’s children, leading to acute malnutrition among those under five. Islamic Relief has implemented specialized nutrition programs designed to both treat and prevent this devastating condition. By focusing on the most vulnerable population, the organization ensures that the next generation has a chance at a healthier and brighter future.


Millions of Yemenis are forced into displacement due to the ongoing conflict. Islamic Relief recognizes the importance of providing shelter and protection to these individuals and families who have lost their homes. Through the distribution of emergency shelter materials and non-food items, we offer a lifeline to those in need, giving them a sense of security and stability during difficult times.


Education is a fundamental right that often gets disrupted during crises. Islamic Relief is actively working to restore access to education for Yemen’s children by establishing temporary learning spaces, providing school supplies, and supporting educational initiatives. By investing in education, Islamic Relief provides academic opportunities and a sense of normalcy and hope for the future.


Amidst the devastation, Islamic Relief is committed to helping families regain their self-sufficiency through livelihood support programs. By offering skills training, resources, and opportunities, we empower individuals to rebuild their lives and support their families, fostering a sense of resilience and independence.


Islamic Relief’s unwavering dedication to alleviating the suffering of Yemen’s people has been a ray of hope amid a prolonged crisis. We can only achieve this with your ongoing support. Our multifaceted efforts, from addressing food insecurity and healthcare to providing clean water, education, and livelihood support highlight our holistic approach to humanitarian aid. The impact of Islamic Relief’s work in Yemen is a testament to the power of collective compassion and the difference that can be made when communities come together to support those in need. By supporting Islamic Relief’s Yemen Emergency Appeal, you can play a part in bringing hope and helping to build a brighter future for its people.
