Help for Yemen - hunger
16.2 million people suffer from acute hunger.

Yemen is one of the poorest countries in the Arab world and has been almost completely destroyed by civil war. The situation in Yemen is catastrophic and, according to UN reports, currently the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. The plight of the population is immeasurable.

16.2 million people are suffering from acute hunger. They do not know where to get their next meal or clean drinking water. With the Covid-19 outbreak in early 2020, yet another tragedy struck the population.

The focus of our work

Tearfund Germany has been working in Yemen since 1998 and continues to support the people there with aid today. Together with local partners who know the situation in the respective project areas in detail, we support the Yemenis in overcoming humanitarian hardship and achieving sustainable improvements in their situation. The focus of our work is on water, sanitation, and hygiene, as well as health and hunger relief.

“I thank God that I can now feel safe fetching water and sometimes even send my grandchildren out.”

Amenah (65) is widowed and lives with her daughter, who is also widowed, and her 8 grandchildren. Thanks to the cistern, it now no longer takes her 5-6 hours a day to fetch water.
