Yemen: Please Help Save A Yemeni Child Today

By Alistair Reign, February 3, 2016. Colour of War Campaign.

In less than one year of civil war more than 21 million Yemeni people need some type of humanitarian assistance to survive the equivalent of over 80 percent of the population; the life-threatening food, water and medical crisis is made even worse by the fact that about 2.3 million people have lost their homes and livelihood due to airstrikes, orphaned children sleep on the street, and families live on the rubble of what was once their home with no means to provide for surviving family members.

Mona Relief Charity on Go Fund Me makes it easy and safe to donate. No amount is too small, or too large.

Saudi-led airstrikes began targeting positions of the Houthis and Yemeni army allies in mid-March 2015, and the horrific reality is about 90% of the bombs fell on the civilian population. [01]

“The suffering that this conflict is inflicting on people is heartbreaking. I hear first-hand accounts of it whenever I speak with women, children and elderly people who have made the perilous crossing to reach Djibouti, Ethiopia and Somalia,” said Claire Bourgeois, UNHCR’s regional refugee coordinator for Yemen.

Wadha said: “We had a decent life before the war started, we had a business and were cultivating crops. But now diesel became expensive and my husband cannot pay for water.

“Even before the war, Yemen had one of the highest child malnutrition rates in the world, according to the World Food Programme. Around half of all children under five are stunted; too short for their age as a result of malnutrition.” [02]

Mothers have been forced to watch their children slowly disappear to the cruelty and torture which is hunger.

Those mothers whose hands were always open in an eternal act of offering to their kin, have now been closed in anguish.

Mothers’ hands are all but empty, mothers’ hands – those hands which once wiped away tears and consoled their little ones stand idle, barren – like, the land which now witnesses a people’s sorrow.

“When not even mothers’ hands can bring comfort and hope, what left is there?

The Mona Relief Organization is fighting to keep hope alive – but this one organization cannot possibly do it alone, its volunteers cannot possibly defy injustice and defeat poverty by themselves,” writes Catherine Shakdam, Mona Relief Charity.

Yemen needs not handouts but the means to build a better future, one which war stole.

PLEASE GIVE GENEROUSLY AND #SaveALifeInYemen TODAY.

Thank you on behalf of the Yemeni families who are relying on the worlds’ humanity, as they struggle to survive in their darkest hour, they cannot do it alone.
