Yemen is currently in a crisis of humanitarian nature. The worst cholera epidemic ever recorded in the world has claimed thousands of lives and caused tens of millions more sick. Hunger strikes continue in Yemen, where people are protesting against at the oppression of government troops. They are accused of using unrestrained bombing campaigns to eliminate rebel-held areas without regard for civilian lives or infrastructure areas.
Yemen has 16 million people who are daily hungry. The health system in Yemen is in fact broken due to seven years of conflict. There’s no other option for help than at home, be it dead or alive. COVID19 victims are starving because doctors don’t have the resources to treat them. They’re too busy fighting each other instead of trying to save their lives.
The country’s poor conditions make it an ideal breeding site for HIV-related sexual transmission. There are four million people who are without a permanent place to call home, and can’t even eat enough due to the rising cost of food while wages remain low- the money that is available is not sufficient for making sure that basic necessities are met, like drinking water or healthcare! That’s why fighting this epidemic will be nearly impossible without aid from outside However, we need to be quick to act before it’s too late.
Although the Yemenite population has been fighting Cholera spreading for a while, it is not yet in danger. There may be some hope, with international organizations such Save The Children USA and World Vision UK supporting them with COVID-19.
How can donating to Welfare Trusts is helping the Yemeni population? Yemen
In times of immense suffering the welfare trusts have been able to provide millions with life-saving food and water. They also provide COVID-19 health kits to stop the spread of the deadly virus that has already claimed many lives in Yemen.
In Yemen welfare trusts have been working tirelessly over the last few years to help those who are in need. They continue to provide humanitarian assistance under extreme circumstances where they have to contend with conflict and difficulties reaching their desired locations which is the main reason why there is an urgent need for international agencies similar to them.
We are pleased to know that assistance is on hand in an era when many struggle to make with their money. Partnering with local groups and providing food and cash so people can buy essential items while helping the economy will hopefully lead them to be free of hunger or at the very least, get them closer to the point they were.
Many generous donors have offered their time and funds to provide women in Yemen an opportunity to start anew life. A welfare trust, Maternity hospitals are funded by donations from charitable organizations to ensure that all women can safely deliver babies without facing health risks or suffering from dehydration during labor. Rehabilitation units provide post-birth care which includes providing medication if required in addition to psychological support before mothers go back out back into the community.
As a response to COVID-19 many welfare trusts are now offering hygiene kits to families living in makeshift camps and providing safe drinking water to be utilized by public facilities like schools and hospitals.
