With its strategic location and its proximity to the richest energy regions in the world, Yemen, which has been the target of international power centers since the past, is now trying to survive as a country dominated by civil war.
Seven thousand people died in Yemen because of the civil war in which 21 million people had serious access to food. 3 million people had to leave home. In the country where the health system collapses, people have great difficulty in reaching health care.
In addition to domestic conflicts, drought is also effective from time to time. Especially in Yemen, where the food and water problem continues to affect many regions, the health crisis is deepening day by day with the spread of infectious diseases.
On the one hand, people struggle with hunger and on the other hand the effects of diseases and internal conflicts. In order to improve the situation in Yemen, the support of the charities is needed.
Since the first day of the crisis, IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation has been providing assistance to families in need throughout the country, especially in the regions of Taiz and Sanâ, in areas such as food aid, baby food, hygiene packages, flour, water, mobile health clinic services. In November 2018, 13 thousand 255 in need of emergency assistance activities were delivered to Yemen.
In 2017, more than 500 thousand people in Yemen were provided with food packages, beds, blankets and health assistance. In 2017 and 2018, sacrificial shares were delivered to 110,000 people in Yemen. As of 2018, 4985 orphans were sponsored in Yemen. Since 2017, 53 thousand patients in Aden and Taiz have been given health assistance to combat cholera.
In addition, 234 cancer and dialysis patients were delivered food and medicines to the Yemen Patient Care Center. The shelter, food and medicine needs of the patients in the center were also met. A total of 2 million people benefited from these benefits in various areas.
