About Us

Yemen Aid is a US-based non-governmental organization that provides humanitarian aid and assistance to Yemen. The organization was founded in response to the ongoing conflict in Yemen, which has caused a major humanitarian crisis, including widespread food insecurity, health emergencies, and displacement of people.

Yemen Aid's mission is to alleviate the suffering of Yemeni people by providing vital humanitarian aid and assistance. Their activities typically involve:

  1. Food security: Yemen Aid provides food assistance to families and individuals affected by the conflict. This could involve the distribution of food baskets, the provision of meals, or support for local food production.
  2. Health: Yemen Aid supports health interventions to address pressing health needs. This could include the provision of medical supplies, support for health facilities, or health education programs.
  3. Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH): Yemen Aid may implement WASH programs to improve access to clean water, sanitation facilities, and hygiene practices. This is especially important in conflict settings where such infrastructure may be damaged or insufficient.
  4. Education: Yemen Aid may support educational initiatives to ensure children and adults have access to education despite the ongoing conflict. This could involve the provision of educational materials, support for teachers, or the creation of safe learning spaces.
  5. Shelter: Yemen Aid could provide support for housing and shelter needs, especially for those who have been displaced by the conflict.
