About Our Work
Our mission: To improve the lives of individuals and families affected by the war in Yemen through a range of sustainable projects, providing tangible results with a positive impact.
We are a non-governmental, 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to alleviating the suffering caused by the ongoing conflict in Yemen.
Officially established in New York City in 2018
from its more informal beginnings in 2015, HRD is the result of friends and community pulling together to find a way to help those less fortunate. Losing loved ones throughout the war ignited our desire to help others in Yemen who have suffered through meaningful initiatives. Our initial project was opening Mercy Bakeries with the goal to provide at least 2,000 loaves of bread a day to families in need.
Here at HRD, we believe no family should be forced to make a choice between healthcare and food. By working with local governments and residents, we procure supplies from inside the country to distribute them to those facing adversity like women, children, and families. We seek to empower and support individuals by supporting projects centered around food security and livelihood development. When a community in a conflict zone receives access to free food and individuals obtain financial assistance, it can rekindle hope and change everything as one of their basic life needs are met and focus can go to things like education to rebuild the country.
