Challenge

More than 24 million people in Yemen are in need of aid. More than 20 million people are food insecure, and 10 million are suffering from extreme levels of hunger. An estimated 7.4 million people require services to treat or prevent malnutrition. 3.2 million people require treatment for acute malnutrition. 17.8 million people lack access to safe water and sanitation. 19.7 million people lack access to adequate healthcare. 3.3 million people are displaced. 2 million children are out of school.

Solution

Yemen Relief & Reconstruction Foundation works through a wide network of local volunteers throughout Yemen to deliver much needed aid. We work in areas that are inaccessible due to war or geography. We have successfully provided services including food baskets to tens of thousands of people, water filters to thousands, warm clothing, school bags and school supplies to kids and schools. We also sponsor over 200 orphans. This project will enable us reach more people with life saving services.

Long-Term Impact

Our services provide families in need with life saving services. Food baskets reduce the risk of malnutrition; the water filters protect against diarrheal diseases including cholera; school support equips children in Yemen with the skills they need to make a better future for themselves and to rebuild their country when peace returns. Sponsoring families with orphans ensures that they don't become homeless.
