It’s heartbreaking – when our team sends updates from their Yemen Emergency Relief, it’s heartbreaking for them to witness the situation in Yemen with their own eyes, and it’s equally heartbreaking for us to hear their updates.
Our team is honoured with the opportunity of meeting the strong people of Yemen, the ones who are fighting for their lives to live.
And we’re doing all we can to help them live.
During our team’s distribution at Raudhah Camp situated in Marib, Yemen, they started their day early to distribute bread for 374 families. Thanks to your donations, we’ll be supplying 700 families with 11,250 bread in four different camps each day! The breads are produced fresh daily in a Bread Factory at 6am in the morning. Alhamdulillah, each family will receive 15 pieces of bread for their breakfast.
While at Raudhah Camp, our team met Mdm Aminah, a single mother, and her children. Four years ago, Mdm Aminah was living with her husband and four children. Unfortunately, a sudden gas explosion took the lives of her two children. After the incident, her husband started to physically abuse her for not being able to save the children, even in her depressive state. Eventually, he left Mdm Aminah and the remaining children all on their own.
“For us back home, be it in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, or the UK, masyaAllah we have so much food. Here, they don’t have enough food and they cannot feed their children. That’s why they are malnourished,”
Mr Basheer Ahmad, CEO of GER
“The two siblings here have been diagnosed by our team of doctors here to be malnourished. The reason why is because they don’t have food to eat. The mother does not have enough food to eat. For us back home, be it in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, or the UK, masyaAllah we have so much food. Here, they don’t have enough food and they cannot feed their children. That’s why they are malnourished,” our GER CEO, Mr Basheer Ahmad shared the story while on the ground in Yemen.
For little Najmuddin, he is suffering from acute malnutrition at the tender age of 1 year and 9 months. Barely two-years-old, Najmuddin has specialists diagnosed him as severely malnourished. Due to his condition, Najmuddin had to undergo liver surgery but alhamdulillah with the help of generous donors and their contributions, Najmiddin will slowly be able to be back to normal, insyaAllah.
It’s clear that with your help, we’ve been able to provide much needed aid to the community in Yemen. These stories are real-life stories that illustrate how important and crucial your aid is to the Yemenis, especially in terms of providing food.
We pray that all the beneficiaries that we have met will be given good health and blessings by Allah S.W.T.
“Let’s take this opportunity to help these people as much as we can, especially these beautiful children here so that they can regain their strength and grow up normally, insyaAllah,” expressed Mr Basheer.
The Yemenis are in dire need of your help, and you can still contribute to our Yemen Emergency today.
