The Crisis in Yemen

Yemen, a country on the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula, is enduring one of the world's most severe humanitarian crises. With a population of approximately 32 million people, 80% live in poverty, and an estimated 21.6 million require some form of humanitarian assistance. The country is facing a major food crisis, with over 17 million people, or 55% of the population, experiencing crisis-level food insecurity or worse, according to the Global Report on Food Crises 2023.

This crisis is driven by nine years of protracted conflict, economic collapse, and inconsistent humanitarian assistance. Decreased household purchasing power, minimal livelihood options, and lack of public services and infrastructure exacerbate the situation. Yemen imports over 85% of its food requirements, making it highly vulnerable to global market fluctuations, import restrictions, and currency depreciation.

 

THE URGENT NEED FOR NUTRITION

Malnutrition in Yemen has reached critical levels, affecting the health and development of countless children and adults. Malnutrition increases susceptibility to infections, impairs growth, and raises mortality risk. Access to nutritious food, particularly protein-rich red meat, is crucial for combating these issues. However, due to the ongoing conflict and economic challenges, many families cannot afford or access such essential nutrition.
 

OUR FRESH QURBAN PROGRAM

Muslim Aid Australia is implementing a Qurban project to improve food security and nutrition for families in Yemen by distributing fresh meat to the most vulnerable, including orphans, widows, and impoverished households, during Eid al-Adha. Our program is designed with the utmost care and adherence to Islamic principles:
 
  • Ethical Sourcing: Before Eid, our experienced team visits local farmers and suppliers to inspect the livestock meticulously. We ensure that all animals meet strict Islamic guidelines and are defects-free.
  • Halal Sacrifice: During the three days of Eid, the animals are sacrificed according to Halal procedures under the supervision of our dedicated staff or a trusted representative.
  • Preparation & Packaging: The meat is carefully prepared and packaged into individual bags or boxes for needy families.
  • Local Delivery: We prioritise delivering the Qurban meat directly to families and communities within the designated regions, ensuring your donation reaches those most in need.
 

HOW YOU CAN HELP

By donating $175 for a share in a cow, your Qurban will help struggling Yemeni families alleviate malnutrition and hunger.
