Yemen is currently in the midst of a humanitarian crisis. The world’s most deadly cholera outbreak has killed thousands and left hundreds of thousands more sick in the meantime, hunger strikes are ongoing throughout the country as the people peacefully protest their oppression the government. They are also accused of carrying out unrestrained bombings against rebel-held areas with little respect for civilian lives or infrastructure targets alike.
16 million people live in hunger each day in Yemen and, with the health system basically collapsed due to more than seven years of fighting, there’s no place left to turn. There is no other source of help apart from home, living or dead COVID19 patients are starving away because medical professionals don’t have access within their communities; too to be fighting with one another, rather than trying to save lives.
The worsening conditions in the country has created an ideal environment for the sexual transmission of HIV. 4 million people live in poverty, and without a where to go. Food prices continue rising and wages are still at a low level. That means not enough funds is available for basic needs such as the provision of clean water and healthcare. This is why fighting this pandemic will be near impossible without help from abroad; however, we must act quickly before it’s too to late.
The Yemenite people are fighting the spreading of Cholera for quite a while until now, however they are not fully out-of danger just at this point. There may be some hope through international organizations like Save The Children America and World Vision UK supporting them with COVID-19.
How your contribution to Welfare Trusts is helping the people of Yemen
These welfare trusts are able to provide water and food for millions in an era of immense suffering. They also provide a COVID-19 health kit to prevent infection, which has already killed a number of Yemenis.
Over the last several years, welfare trusts have been tirelessly working in Yemen to help those that are the most vulnerable. They provide humanitarian aid for those in need regardless of conflict or difficulties in reaching their destination. That’s why they’re essential for international agencies.
This is a time of struggle for many and we’re glad that there is assistance available to those who need it. We’re hoping that by working with local organizations and helping people purchase food items and cash to help people get through the cycle of food insecurity.
Women in Yemen are getting a fresh start because of the numerous generous donors who offer their time and money to help this cause. Maternity hospitals, which are part of a welfare trust, receive donations of charity to ensure every woman can have a safe birth without suffering from illness or dehydration when laboring. Rehabilitation centers provide after-birth support and medication to mothers prior to their return back to society.
In response to COVID-19 a lot of welfare trusts are now providing hygiene kits for families that live in camp sites as well as safe water so that it can be used at public facilities, such as schools or hospitals.
