The people of Yemen need us

Four years of war have wrought disaster thoughout the country:

  • Twenty-four million people depend on humanitarian aid for their survival
  • 8 million children are suffering from malnutrition
  • Almost 4 million people have been internally displaced in the past three years
  • Fewer than half the health facilities are still functioning
  • Water is difficult to access and is often of poor quality, so there are frequent outbreaks of diseases such as cholera.

With your donation, we can provide help

Five of our partner NGOs operate in Yemen and your donation will enable them to:

  • provide access to clean water
  • treat malnourished children
  • treat the sick and wounded
  • improve hygiene conditions and so help prevent the spread of disease
  • distribute essential everyday items
  • distribute cash, where technically possible, so that people can themselves buy the items they need.

“Because the media has paid little attention to this humanitarian disaster, we call on everyone to use their personal network to make the Swiss public aware of the seriousness of the situation.”
Tony Burgener, Swiss Solidarity director
