Speaking at the COP27 climate conference today alongside U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, Pakistan’s Prime Minister requested support from the global community to aid his country’s recovery from their worst flood in history. Beginning on June 14, the monsoon rains submerged one-third of the country by the end of August, killing at least 1,500 civilians and displacing 32 million people. Climate change played a major role in the heavier rains, melting glaciers, and severe heat wave that led to this disaster.

“Millions of people are going into winter without shelter or livelihood,” Prime Minister Shebhaz Sharif said. “Women and children are still looking to us to protect their basic needs.”

Pakistan has mobilized every available resource toward their relief effort, but it is not enough. While Sharif hopes to receive major financing from international institutions like the World Bank, those processes are slow and cumbersome. Individuals can rally right now for the people of Pakistan by donating to organizations that are providing relief on the ground. 


Humanity for Relief and Development is one of those organizations! We have expanded our Mercy Bakery and Mercy Kitchen program to Kharian, Pakistan, and are raising funds to open a mobile Mercy Bakery & Kitchen that will deliver aid closer to the flood victims. If you donate to the cause here, 100% of your money will be legally required to be spent on food aid for Pakistanis.

Pakistan Flood Damage

The damage from the floods has been extensive. The rains have destroyed more than four million acres of farms, including wheat that was expected to feed 65 million people across South Asia. With an estimated 900,000 livestock killed, tens of thousands of people who depended on these animals for their livelihood now find themselves in dire need. The floods have also damaged or destroyed millions of acres of forest and aquatic ecosystems, which will release large quantities of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and exacerbate weather conditions in the future. The flooding has compromised Pakistan’s ability to generate electricity, threatening the country’s ability to sustain its industrial base. Ironically, the heavy rains have contaminated Pakistan’s water sources and made the procurement of potable water a major problem.

COP27: Climate Change

The impacts of climate change are a global challenge, but they do not affect all countries and all people equally. Some populations are more vulnerable than others, and the countries in the Global South, which have emitted the least amount of greenhouse gases, suffer the most from climate change. We need a new legal framework that will hold the countries with the most greenhouse gas emissions proportionately responsible for funding climate adaptation and mitigations projects in other countries.

Humanitarian Response

The UN World Food Program has been providing emergency food assistance to people affected by the floods. They have distributed emergency food rations and seeds to farmers and livestock owners, as well as livestock feed and veterinary medicines to livestock owners.

Volunteering

Volunteering with reputable organizations that are already on the ground in Pakistan can be a rewarding way to contribute. Organizations like Mercy Corps and International Federation of Red Cross have volunteers who are already working with the flood victims.

Conclusion

The flooding in Pakistan has created one of the worst humanitarian crises the country has faced in decades, and as climate change progresses, future weather events will only get worse. The government and humanitarian organizations have launched a massive relief operation to help millions of people in need, but much more assistance is needed. The international community must do all it can to support Pakistan as it responds to this disaster. Time is of the essence and action must be swift if lives are to be saved.

On July 20-22 2021, Muslims around the world will be celebrating Eid al-Adha, one of the major Islamic holidays. The day falls on the tenth day of the twelfth and final month in the Islamic Lunar Calendar and is preceded by a moon sighting and the completion of the Holy Pilgrimage to the Hajj. Eid al-Adha is the festival of sacrifice and honors Ibrahim’s commitment to Allah’s commands in agreeing to sacrifice his son, whom Allah replaces with a ram at the last minute. Following the Eid Salaah (or Eid Prayers), the Qurbani sacrifice is performed where a lamb, sheep, cow, goat, camel, or bull which is shown to be halal friendly is slaughtered in remembrance of Ibrahim’s sacrifice. The meat is then divided into three equal pieces, one for the family, one for friends, and one to donate. People are also encouraged to give gifts and spend time with family during the  holiday celebrations.

Due to the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Yemen, many families are without the means to acquire animals and clothing to use to participate in Eid al-Adha festivities. This is where our organization, Humanity for Relief and Development, steps in and is able to help. We have distributed clothing for Eid al-Adha in Sana’a and have provided animals for Eid sacrifices in Sana’a, Ibb, and Rada’a. Our Eid al-Adha Clothing Project distributes necessary clothes to needy households to help them enjoy Eid and to get them ready for the coming winter season. In 2020, the project distributed cards to 1373 households where each card was worth 10,000 YER so beneficiaries could buy whatever clothes they lacked or prefered. 2130 cards were distributed in 2020 to families in need and 200 more cards were distributed at Al-Reaya`a Orphanage where each child received two cards.

Our Eid al-Adha Sacrifice Project targets needy families and works to provide them with meat to cover their food needs and in particular to allow their full participation in the Eid sacrifice. From July 5th to September 12th 2020, the project operated mainly in 3 governorates: Sana’a, Ibb, and Albayda. In each of these governorates, anywhere from 5, to 10, to 360 sheep were sacrificed along with an additional 4 oxen in some places, yielding upwards of 5450 Kg of meat across all three governorates. Each
household got a 2 Kg portion of the meat in each location.

We need donors’ help to fund these projects because purchasing sheep and oxen is extremely expensive, especially in Yemen where food insecurity is abundant. The May 2021 World Food Programme report states that in Yemen there are currently 20.7 million people in need of humanitarian assistance, 4 million people who are internally displaced, and 16.2 million people who are food insecure. We need your help to continue to provide food, clothing, and sacrificial animals to the people of Yemen, especially during the approaching holiday season.

Yemen is now running on its seventh year of conflict as it marked its sixth year anniversary on March 26. Yemenis had no idea they were heading for the costliest and vicious turmoil that same day in 2015.

Despite the country experiencing several military interventions and civil wars in the past, what the people of Yemen are going through now is uncomparable—the ongoing war has caused more than 233,000 lives, which include 131,000 from indirect causes like lack of health assistance and food insecurity.

Furthermore, there are over 20 million Yemenis who are experiencing starvation with 10 million facing the risk of famine.

Deteriorating Situation at the Sixth-Year of Yemen Conflict

As the devastating conflict turned six years, it is still running in full force. The recent military escalations between the Houthis and the Saudi-led coalition, this has contributed to the turbulent humanitarian crisis that is considered at the worst in modern history—which is expected to continuously deepen in the coming months or years.

The humanitarian situation in Yemen, on the other hand, is in a dire situation, with 80% of its population is experiencing food scarcity—these starved and suffering people don’t even know where to get their next meal.

Unemployment is rife while 75% of the total population is in need of healthcare assistance. However, only 50% of medical facilities fully functioning. This situation can lead children, pregnant women, and elderly people at a higher risk of acquiring diseases.

Food Crisis and the Depleting Healthcare System

Over 40% of the Yemen population are at risk of starvation, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called the situation a “death sentence” on Yemenis as more than 400,000 children under the age of five are facing death due to malnutrition.

Photos of Yemeni children and babies—emaciated, with a blank stare, and ribs exposed have been posted on different social media platforms in hopes to raise awareness and funds to help alleviate their current situation.

However, since the start of the seven-year running conflict, local and international humanitarian aid organizations are facing hurdles and challenges in providing assistance to the people. The Houthis in control of the northern part of the country who swept into Sanaa in 2014, have been accused of stealing and selling aid on the black market.

Moreover, humanitarian funding is currently standing at less than half of what is required to save the people of Yemen from further suffering. In Yemen, two in three people are in dire need of help to survive.

David Gressly, the Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen, emphasized that Yemenis are in urgent need of aid to fight off hunger and have access to healthcare services with high hopes that they will be able to keep their resilience and dignity.

Yemenis Looking at Famine in the Eye

Millions of people in Yemen are facing famine unless the rest of the world takes urgent action, this is according to the World Food Programme (WFP). David Beasly, WPF’s executive director, has stated that there are nearly 50,000 Yemenis already living in a famine-like condition, while over 5 million people are a few steps away from it.

The classification of famine in Yemen would be difficult to determine because of the heavy burden of evidence needed. A proof that 20% of Yemeni households are facing severe food insecurity, 30% of children are suffering from acute malnutrition, and two out of 10,000 people are dying daily due to starvation is required.

Conflict zones have made it difficult to gather data because communications are disrupted, humanitarian access is restricted, and communities are displaced. Therefore, locking down the facts is a huge problem to address.

A more pressing issue is the impending catastrophe in Yemen, its current humanitarian crisis is the largest in the world with over 20.7 million including 11.3 million children are needing immediate assistance, to further this, a report from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) said that the conflict has already set back human development in the country by 21 years.

Ceasefire Efforts

The efforts of confirming a ceasefire, on the other hand, are still unclear. A discussion about restoring peace was held between the United Nations (UN) envoy Martin Griffiths and Huthi official Mohammed Abdelsalam. It also included the request to ease restrictions on Hodeida, which is the gateway of food, humanitarian aid, and fuel entering Yemen.

With immediate solution at a far sight, the UN humanitarian agency OCHA has lamented the consequences of the seven-year running war in Yemen. The country has become a no man’s land, the immeasurable death and suffering it has caused the people is unimaginable.

Millions of Yemenis are starving due to the war and the famine is now being considered man-made. The probable solution to help completely stave off starvation is an immediate ceasefire—but both parties see no purpose in it.

Humanity for Relief & Development: Advocating for Change

We at Humanity for Relief and Development (HRD) are on a mission to improve the lives of the people and families affected by the conflict in Yemen.

We have come up with sustainable projects that lead to a tangible result, providing positive results to Yemeni lives. Our initial project, which we call Mercy Bakery ensures that everyone in Yemen will not sleep or wake up with empty stomachs.

By providing nutritious loaves of bread every day to Yemeni families, we can help alleviate hunger and starvation—and prevent famine from consuming innocent lives. We are continuously working with local governments and residents to procure supplies and distribute them to those who are left with no hope.

Our projects are focused on their basic needs like food, shelter, medicine, and financial assistance. Through these projects, we’ll be able to reach out to every Yemeni individual and rekindle their hope and believe that a brighter future is awaiting them.

However, we cannot do this alone and we need your urgent help. As the war continues to worsen, we are not giving up on every Yemeni life. Our humble beginnings have led us to help families in Yemen by providing them a total of 5,256,000 pieces of bread in a year.

But we need your help too, you can learn more about our projects by reaching out to our team today.
