PROGRAMS & PROJECTS.
It is a basic human right to have access to water and sanitation and it has been acknowledged by the UN, that clean drinking water and sanitation are essential to the realisation of all human rights. Water is essential for life to survive – a lack of water can result in severe illness and, worse still, death.
When living in suitable living conditions, it’s hard to imagine a life without basic necessities, but that’s the life of the Yemeni population.
Currently over half the population of Yemen – some 14.4 million people – are struggling to find clean drinking water. It is already one of the most water-scarce countries in the world and conflict has only resulted in further damage to water systems throughout Yemen.
On a regular basis, we are installing water tanks throughout areas in Yemen to deliver water to those in need. We also deliver smaller water tanks throughout neighbourhoods allowing people to refill their big bottles and house-attached water tanks.
This ensures that families have a supply of clean water, both for drinking and growing food, on a monthly basis.
Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said: “The best charity is giving water to drink” and he was the most generous in giving charity. (as narrated in Ahmad).
You can help us make a real difference in Yemen by donating to our water campaign. It’s our aim, with your generous help and assistance, to continue providing water to those who are in need of our support.
Our Tanks range between £250 and £900 British pounds, depending on the size. The sizes start at 1,000 litres to 12,000 litres.
Delivering water to remote areas in Yemen, would be accomplished by setting up large water tanks in specific areas where water is difficult to find, these tanks will be for public use.
With a population of less than 30 million, it’s a catastrophic fact to know that over 15 million Yemenis lack access to basic health. This stat comes as no real surprise as only 50% of the health facilities are functioning. The roads to the cities for the villages are unsafe and very far for citizens to reach hospitals in time to get treatment. Illnesses that may be relatively easy to treat in more developed countries are a lot harder to manage in Yemen and was exposed by the worst cholera outbreak in history, that hit in 2017, leaving over 1 million cases reported.
When there is a crisis in Yemen, YEMAID provides humanitarian aid that often includes emergency health care.
As part of its humanitarian efforts, YEMAID provides both financial and in-kind assistance for patients that are hospitalised in different regions of Yemen.
We provide needy patients with financial assistance to continue with a treatment that they otherwise could not afford. Our aim is to help as many patients as possible, but we urgently need your ongoing financial support to cover the costs of their medication.
A £200 Winter Family Emergency Kit will provide a vulnerable family with warm clothes, blankets, and mattresses, helping them to survive the bitter cold months.
It’s been a devastating year in Yemen. Described as the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, 80 per cent of people need assistance and 7.4 million are malnourished - many acutely so. Things have only become worse in winter.
In winter, rain comes in heavy torrents. Temperatures can plummet to below freezing. Many families have already exhausted their savings just trying to survive for this long and don’t have a way to cope with winter, while those displaced by conflict are at extreme risk due to the severity the winter weather brings. We must do all we can to protect Yemen’s most vulnerable.
As part of YEMAIDs goal, to provide support and care to all aspects of the Yemeni society. This is just the tip of the iceberg and we desperately need your financial support to provide more food parcels to even more disadvantaged families and individuals.
Food is one of the basic needs that is essential to survive and to maintain the health of the individual and their family. YEMAID recognises this undeniable fact and understands that millions of Yemenis including thousands of children are severely malnourished.
These parcels of food supplies are essential for daily life, covering the needs of needy families. Each parcel costs £40 British pounds and consists of:
The Prophet, peace be upon him, said: “One is not a believer who fills his stomach while his neighbour goes hungry.” (Bukhari).
Every year, YEMAID also creates a Ramadan Campaign for everyone to remember the poor and needy in Yemen during an important month. It is the most blessed month in the Islamic calendar and is an opportunity for us to give food and gifts to the less fortunate.
