Yemen Health Crisis

Our Yemen Health Crisis Fund seeks to alleviate the financial burden of receiving medical assistance for Yemenis. In Yemen, most civilians can’t receive the healthcare services they desperately need. 

Frequent conflicts and complications have resulted in health issues in Yemen including; hospital closures due to being destroyed and deplorable conditions.

Destruction of infrastructure from the conflict have made the health situation in Yemen dire, and we aim to alleviate the health crisis and bring light to a tragic situation

Health Issues In Yemen

Healthcare workers sometimes have to go without salaries and operational costs in some facilities due to limited finances. The situation puts vulnerable populations like children at higher risk of dying from malnutrition and diseases. In September 2020, the UN Situation reported the closure of health facilities caring for 1.8 million people. Reduced food aid for 8 million people during the famine made the conditions worse for the population.
According to USAID, there are 19.7 million people without access to basic health services, and less than 50 percent of health facilities are functioning. War wounds, famine, cholera, COVID-19, and torrential rains have all combined to impact the population and a fragile healthcare system. Moreover, Yemen’s fuel crisis has led to an increase in the cost of essential items, healthcare, and transport. 

Alleviate The Health Situation In Yemen

At HRD, we don't want people to be pushed to choose between food and their health. Through Project Medical Relief, we reach out and help those who don't have the financial means to pay for medical services. When someone needs an operation or some other form of medical care, we help cover for those expenses. We hope to make the Yemeni population healthier and stronger by covering for someone's medical care.

Children Affected By The Yemen Health Crisis

Our medical aid project aims to help the outbreak of the tragedies that struck Yemen. Children have borne the brunt of the conflict. An estimated 85,000 children under the age of five may have died from severe malnutrition, and over two million more are at risk. The situation is exacerbated by a lack of access to basic medical care, as hospitals and clinics have been destroyed or are inaccessible due to the fighting. Let’s give these kids a fighting chance, could you imagine if your life depended on a operation that you could not afford?  Join HRD, a global medical aid nonprofit charity, lets save lives together!
