Yemen is the poorest country in the Middle East and its people are currently living through one of the worst humanitarian disasters in history.
Millions of vulnerable people are currently suffering through no fault of their own. These people must face a daily struggle to survive, dealing with the devastating effects of malnutrition, disease and extreme poverty.
At Al Mustafa Welfare Trust, we are committed to doing all that we can to help and support these people, sending vital aid and supplies. With your generous support, we can reach more families, children and vulnerable adults through our Yemen appeal, doing our bit to make the daily struggle for survival that little bit easier.
When you make a Yemen crisis donation, you will be actively helping to answer these people’s prayers and give them hope for a brighter future. Together, we can help Yemen overcome the burdens of conflict, poverty, disease, and malnutrition.
Our teams are exclusively working with UN registered partners to provide essential aid.
After five years of war which has already created the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, now with the coronavirus pandemic could not have arrived at a more inadequate time. In a country where 80% of the population relies on aid, the recent cuts of funding from UN partners is having a direct affect on the very people who was surviving on that. Food Deliveries have already been halved which could easily push 10 million people already at the brink of starvation into a full blown famine. Yemens Medical facilities are out of action after all the damage from the war.
Many people do not have enough food to survive but for those who are could end up contracting the Covid-19 virus which could be the last straw of survival.
With your support, Al Mustafa Welfare Trust has been working hard to deliver essentials on the ground of Yemen while they remain under poverty and lockdown due to COVID - 19 outbreak.
The situation in Yemen seems to worsen day by day, with ongoing conflict leaving tens of thousands of people dead and millions more displaced. Homes and businesses have been reduced to rubble, families split up, and entire communities destroyed. Many of these people have nowhere left to turn and no choice but to flee their homes and seek refuge elsewhere, doing their best to escape the conflict.
The statistics speak for themselves. Since the conflict began in 2011 due to political unrest, 85,000 Yemeni children have died from malnutrition. A child dies from the devastating effects of malnutrition and preventable diseases every ten minutes.
These staggering statistics really bring things into perspective. Yemen relief is urgently needed to help combat the shocking effects of the ongoing conflict. Can you spare a Yemen donation from the UK to help save the lives of these vulnerable children?
In addition to this, one of the biggest challenges that the Yemeni people currently face is hunger and malnutrition. As a result of the conflict, essential supplies including food, health supplies and clean, safe water are in extremely short supply.
Rates of malnutrition are higher than ever before – hundreds of thousands of vulnerable children are currently facing severe malnutrition, but with no food available, their chances of survival grow slimmer day by day. Their situation is worsened by the lack of clean and safe water to drink, cook with, and wash in. Families have no choice but to use dirty, contaminated water which leaves them susceptible to the devastating effects of preventable diseases such as cholera.
There is also a lack of suitable sanitation systems and the country’s healthcare facilities are desperately understaffed, underfunded, and lacking in supplies of even the most basic medicines and medical essentials. With the conflict ongoing and conditions continuing to worsen, it’s clear that this crisis is devastating the lives of the Yemeni people.
The UN has warned that if the situation does not change, Yemen could soon be at the mercy of the worst famine in 100 years. It’s important to act now and do everything we can to support these vulnerable people.
Just £55 will provide a family with a vital food pack for one month.

Abdul Basit is a seven-year-old Yemeni orphan boy. He was happily living with his family in Sana'a, Seiyun, where his father ran a fruit shop. However, one day, Abdul Basit's life was turned upside down. Abdul lost everything in a horrific air strike - including both his parents. Since that traumatic incident, Abdul and his two younger sisters have been living with their disabled uncle.
Yemen has great historical importance and its people were directly blessed by our Prophet Muhammad (SAW). However, the Yemeni people are currently struggling with what has widely been described as the worst humanitarian crisis in the world today.
Right now, 11.3 million children in Yemen are in danger. Support Al Mustafa Welfare Trust’s Yemen crisis appeal and help us to continue providing life-saving aid and assistance.
