THE WORLD’S WORST HUMANITARIAN CRISIS
Let's not forget Yemen, the largest Humanitarian Crisis in the World!
The ongoing unrest continues to ravage the country and its people, pushing millions more towards the brink of starvation.
Almost 70% of the Yemeni population are in desperate need of humanitarian assistance, especially women and children. In some areas, inadequate food consumption is now over 45% and acute malnutrition among children under the age of 5 reached 17.6% in 2021.
The race to save lives in Yemen is on, so we've amped up our response efforts in Yemen specifically targeting malnutrition among children under the age of 5 and pregnant and lactating women as well as promotion of proper maternal and child health practices.
Our on the ground team is establishing Mobile Medical Teams to visit poor communities and camps for internally displaced persons from the Yemeni Civil War and to provide services addressing nutrition as well as to integrate primary health care and maternal and child health services for patients.
Cash payments will also be made to the neediest families allowing them the freedom and respect to determine their own needs and allowing us to deliver aid in a more effective and dignified manner.

MORE ON THE SITUATION
LIFE IN YEMEN UNBEARABLE
Starvation, wasting, depression – UN chief Guterres recently called childhood in Yemen “a special kind of hell” as the country struggles to treat the millions of children in need of help. Sick and injured children are turned away by overwhelmed health facilities that have been devastated by COVID-19.
Please help us save the lives of vulnerable Yemeni families including the local families, and support local hospitals.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Penny Appeal Australia is rapidly responding to this humanitarian crisis. The people of Yemen cannot afford to wait any longer. Thanks to the generosity of donors, we’ve reached thousands in Yemen, providing immediate relief in the form of food, water, medicine and COVID-19 kits.
In addition to this, we’re working to establish a bakery that will employ locals which will support the suffering economy and feed hungry people in affected regions.
Right now, Penny Appeal Australia only has a small fraction of the funding needed to keep responding. Your donations are life-saving to the people of Yemen in their hour of greatest need.
Every single penny counts.
Use your Zakat and Sadaqah to save lives this Ramadan.
Take charge. Give.
