Yemen Relief Efforts

Islamic Relief has delivered 19 tonnes of medical aid to Yemen as it faces the worst cholera outbreak in modern history.

Islamic Relief, alongside the humanitarian community, has signed a statement calling for the immediate opening of all air and seaports to ensure food, fuel and medicines can enter the country.

We are distributing food across a wide area in partnership with the UN’s World Food Programme. We have provided food to more than 2.5 million people. We’ve also equipped 21 hospitals and clinics across the country to support doctors and nurses working to treat wounded, sick and malnourished people.

The areas where we have responded include Sanaa, Sana’a city, Aden, Taiz, Lahj, Abyan, Amran, Shabwah, Mareb, Sa’ada, Hodeida, Hadramout and Dhamar.
