Yemen needs you
An estimated 2.3 million children under the age of 5 are currently suffering from acute malnutrition in Yemen. 400,000 of these children are suffering from severe acute malnutrition, and could tragically die if they do not receive urgent treatment. With COVID-19 already spreading rapidly in the country, Yemen is trying to grapple with widespread food shortages whilst fighting the devastating pandemic.
More than five years of conflict has deepened Yemen’s poverty, devastated its infrastructure, and caused widespread hunger and suffering. The Yemen crisis is getting worse, day by day.

This Ramadan, Feel Their Pain
Do we still feel the anguish of countless families in Gaza imprisoned by siege, the hunger of a child in Myanmar who has nothing to eat tonight, or the screams of a mother who lost her child amid bullets and bombs in Yemen today?
This Ramadan, let’s feel their struggle and come together as one
The Prophet (PBUH) said: “The likeness of believers in regard to mutual love, mercy, and kindness is that of one body; when any part aches, the whole body aches, because of sleeplessness and fever.” (Sahih Muslim).
The only way we can be one body, is to allow ourselves to the feel their pain and help them during a time of need.
In Syria, there are currently 13 million people, or nearly three-quarters of Syria’s population, now rely on international humanitarian aid for survival. There is no end in sight for the raging conflict and people are suffering.
While so much around us feels uncertain, we can feel safe in the promise of Allah, the Most Generous, that Sadaqah protects us from calamity and sickness. He even tells us that giving charity increases your sustenance!
So, let’s give more than ever this Ramadan.
Your Zakat, Lillah and Sadaqah can save lives.
