War in Yemen – join us on social media!

Help us reach more people with our appeal for donations for Yemen! On this page you will find content to share on your own networks. THANK YOU!

We need your help!

Yemen is currently experiencing one of the world’s largest humanitarian disasters. In collaboration with our five NGO partners, we are committed to helping the population affected by the ravages of war. However, this war and its terrible consequences have received little media coverage. That’s why we need your help. Share the contents of this page on your own social networks and thus make your friends and acquaintances aware of the great distress in Yemen and the help we can provide.

Why make a donation for Yemen?

  • The war in Yemen has been raging for more than four years;
  • According to UNHCR, this is the worst humanitarian disaster in the world;
  • 24 million people depend on humanitarian aid for their survival – three times the Swiss population;
  • 1.8 million children suffer from malnutrition – in Yemen, more children are malnourished than under 20 years of age in Switzerland.
  • Nearly 4 million people have been displaced within their own countries over the past three years;
  • More than half of the health centres are out of order;
  • Lack of access to safe drinking water and its poor quality lead to the spread of diseases and epidemics such as cholera

How can we help?

Five Swiss Solidarity partner NGOs are currently working in Yemen and are helping in the following ways:

  • they ensure access to drinking water;
  • they take care of malnourished children;
  • they take care of the sick and wounded;
  • they improve hygiene conditions and help to prevent the spread of diseases;
  • they distribute kits containing the items necessary for daily survival;
  • where technically feasible, they distribute cash so that Yemenis can buy the goods they need themselves.
