YEMEN CRISIS APPEAL
We are pleased to announce the launch of a empowerment project for Yemen!
We have been trying for the last 10 months to gain a visa to enter Yemen, but due to the ongoing situation, unfortunately we have not been able obtain a visa yet. So we won’t be traveling to Yemen just now but we’ve located trusted people already working on the ground, enabling us to help.
Did you know 14 million people in Yemen do not have enough food or clean water, and seven million are at risk of dying of starvation.
More than 40,000 people have been killed or injured due to warfare in the villages, losing their homes, their safety and healthcare. 3.1 million people have been forced out of their homes.
Millions of people are living in overpopulated shelters or damaged homes, while 184,000 people have fled to other countries.
Due to the desperate situation in Yemen, which is constantly getting worse, and us not obtaining visas, we have teamed up with Haidara (http://www.haidaraf.org/en/) , a local trusted and vetted charity organization on the ground for an empowerment project of building a bakery, that will give bread/ baked goods to the poorest and most destitute in Sana`a (Capital of Yemen). Any money generated by the bakery will go towards the running of the bakery, benefiting orphans, widows & the disabled.
We know everyone is disturbed by what is happening in Yemen. We hope you will fully join in this effort to help ease the suffering, and remove some of the guilt we all feel for not being able to do more.
Please help us reach our target as the civil war has been going on for more than 3 years and we need more empowerment charity projects!
As always, we will provide full feedback and report back to all of the doners. We will clearly show how and where the money was spent.
IF YOU ARE DONATING ONLINE AND ARE A UK TAX PAYER PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU TICK THE GIFT AID BOX, THIS IS THE ONLY WAY WE CAN ENSURE THAT 100% OF YOUR DONATION WILL GOTO THE CAUSE
