THE WORLD’S WORST HUMANITARIAN CRISIS
As a result of ongoing conflict, Yemen is currently experiencing the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.
Of the 30.8 million people in Yemen, more than 20 million – almost the entire population of Australia - are in desperate need of humanitarian assistance, especially women and children.
For the people of Yemen, life is a constant fight for survival.
With no end to the conflict in sight, and a global pandemic that has devastated an already non-existent healthcare system, the need for basic necessities such as food, access to water, sanitation and medical supplies has never been more vital.
With tens of thousands of people are starving, approximately 2.3 million children under 5 currently face death due to severe malnutrition, 4 million people internally displaced, and more than 16 million people at risk of acute hunger - the race to save lives in Yemen is on.
$80 – Could provide 1 emergency food parcel

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.
