Islamic Relief Yemen distribute blankets to families.

War-torn Yemen teeters is on the brink of famine: a staggering 14 million of its people are food insecure and malnutrition is widespread, particularly among children. Water is scarce. Around 70 per cent of the population need humanitarian assistance. Families uprooted from their homes by fighting to face uncertain futures, and thousands of people have died.

Safiyya Sofyan Saeed is a widow, struggling to provide for her eight children. She relied on support from charities, but this ended when the conflict began.

“We have no regular salary or income. We have no electricity – we lived in the darkness for months,”
Safiyya told us, explaining that high prices mean poor families cannot afford to buy fuel for lighting, cooking, or heating. She and her family faced grave conditions as winter approached. Plummeting temperatures trigger a rise in conditions such as flu, fever and skin diseases.

“May Allah protect you and the organisation, and provide you with goodness and health.”

The conflict has crippled Yemen’s healthcare system, with even basic medical supplies running out and hospitals forced to close their doors. “[Islamic Relief Waqf] have provided us with food supplies and blankets. They also gave us winter clothes,” said Safiyya, describing the lifesaving aid the family received to protect them from the cold. In Sanaa and Saada, we distributed food and essential items such as warm clothing, mattresses and bedding – as well as brochures educating families about good hygiene and safety practices. In total, we reached 1,200 orphans children and their families.

The difference between IWF and other organisations is that IWF will invest your donations and bring a sustainable return year on year and serve people indefinitely.
