The Current State of the Yemen Crisis
According to UNICEF, 80% of Yemen’s 24 million people requires humanitarian assistance. Children, especially, have been caught in the middle of the conflict which began in March 2015. Since then, life has just become harder and harder as families have been separated, loved ones lost and those remaining in Yemen, forced into making ends meet one way or another.
The only time that some families eat well is from the Qurbani meat donations which UK Islamic Mission distributes to those most in need. These shares ensure that vulnerable Yemen refugees eat a nutritious meal – this is just one of the ways in which our Muslim charity helps in Yemen and other impoverished countries.
Without basic medical supplies, millions of people are without the care they need. This means that illnesses that may otherwise mean nothing more than a day or two in bed for you often manifest into something much, much more serious and, often, fatal. Even when medical supplies are available, often hospital facilities are not up to scratch – this results in patients avoidably becoming sicker in the places where they go to get well.
