Yemen: Mona Relief brings hope before Eid Al Adha

Published (Sept, 21, 2015). Shia International News Association.

The Mona Relief Organization

The Mona Relief Organization is helping to feed hungry children living in war-torn countries.

The Mona Relief organization – A Yemeni-based charity for humanitarian relief and development – managed earlier this September to deliver valuable aid to war-stricken Yemenis, at a time when many feel they have been abandoned by the international community.

Independently run by Fatik Al Rodaini in Yemen (a journalist and human rights activist) and Dr Riaz Karim in the UK, the Mona Relief organization has already made its mark in Yemen, offering the poorest and most most vulnerable a sympathetic shoulder to lean on.

While most relief agencies remain bogged down by politics, forced to play a game of cat and mouse with wealthy patrons in order to keep their operations going, the Mona Relief organization has defiantly outsourced its funding, calling on private donations to prevent any form of political hijacking.

A former official at the UN, Dr Karim has said to be determined to offer Yemen and all Yemenis the future they deserve – one filled with hope and joy.

With Eid Al Adha being only a few days away, the Mona Relief organization was adamant no Saudi-run blockade or other logistic impediments would keep their team from distributing the food, medicine and other aid they had reserved for the city of Hodeidah.

One of the poorest city of Yemen, Hodeida seaport has suffered a great deal under Saudi bombing.

Most of the city infrastructures have been laid to waste, leaving tens of thousands to fend for themselves in the harshest conditions possible.

While relief was only temporary, the Mona Relief organization managed to raise a few smiles.

All donations are put toward the purchase of lifesaving food, medicine, and crucial supplies such as warm clothing and bedding – this is a very cold winter for many homeless Yemeni families.

  • The May 18-21 festival appeared to be a Saudi charm offensive aimed at federal policy makers as the Trudeau government fields questions about its decision to grant export permits for the armoured vehicles to a country that U.S. watchdog Freedom House regularly ranks among “the worst of the worst” on human rights. The Saudi embassy blamed “logistical reasons” for its last-minute change of plans when contacted Monday and a spokesperson said the country’s decision was not motivated by fear of protesters. Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion’s office had already said he would not be attending the “Saudi Cultural Days in Canada.” The embassy was adamant the event “had nothing to do” with the $15-billion arms deal and said it had been planned for years. Canada’s Department of Global Affairs, however, said it was notified of the “Cultural Days” on Jan. 14. That date was nearly two weeks after mass executions in Saudi Arabia drew public condemnation from the Trudeau government.
