A long-running political crisis in Yemen takes a turn for the worse and escalates to violence and war. Yemen is already one of the poorest countries in the Middle East even during the peaceful time. Many lost their home, their job and their family. We took the initiative to help provide them with food and water. Donate now and save lives!
The one and half-year civil war in Yemen left the country in total chaos and massive destruction. And one cannot imagine how much more of a catastrophe it would become in the future. United Nation has classified Yemen as Level 3 crisis similar to country Syria as which is the most severe and large-scale humanitarian crises.United Nation also says that 21 million or 85% of its population is in need of humanitarian aids, meaning, 4 out 5 Yemenis require some form of assistance and aid!
From whom should they ask for help if it’s not from us, their brothers and sisters. The war destroyed their homes and shattered their hopes. Therefore, we come forward to provide help in the form of food and water; we are hoping against hope that this will give them some dose of happiness and will. We talked about our plans and project in length in the booklet. Check out our booklet : Download Here!
The one month long mission has successfully and more importantly, safely ended in February 2016. Our staff who is also the project manager of Save Yemen, Ab Hafiz bin Ab Khalik, together with the help of more than 20 volunteers from Yemen, managed to execute all the plans although there have been some hiccups along the way. The area of focus in this first mission is Zabid, Tuhayta and Hodeidah.
The mission started on 15 January with our project manager departing from KLIA with another fellow volunteer, Mr Muhammad Ramadhan bin Roslan. The plane touched down in Oman and they resumed their journey to Yemen by land. The exhausting 13 hours drive was as a result of the dispute happening in Yemen that won’t allow safe landings of airplane in their airports.
After a few days in Tarim, we departed to Seiyun and Mukalla to see the effect of war on the city and later to Zabid to begin our first mission for Save Yemen. Before distributing the aids, the volunteers first did a survey to find out which area they need to prioritize to receive the aids. After all the preparation is done, a group of 6 volunteers begin the first phase of distribution for 50 families. Another 50 packets of food aids are distributed in the following days.
After Tarim, we went to another place called Tuhayta for the second phase of distribution and Zabid for the third one. After that, we resume our journey to Hodeidah to obtain permit to go to Sana’a. After much difficulties, we managed to get the permit and proceeded to go to Sana’a.
In Sana’a we distributed 48 more packages of food aid to the people there. Besides that, we also made some surveys for potential places to be rented for our office.
The Save Yemen 1.0 mission ended on 19 Feb successfully and we are now planning for Save Yemen 2.0. Stay tuned!
