YEMEN APPEAL: Summer 2020 update

One crisis after another

The people of Yemen are suffering. After five years of conflict, political turmoil and food shortages, the country is now seeing an escalating number of coronavirus-related deaths too.

An already devastated healthcare system plus projected shortfalls in international aid and charity donations, is likely to impact the most vulnerable in society the worst – the frail, pregnant women and children. For further context, visit this BBC NEWS article about how the crisis in Yemen is likely to impact children.

Thank you for supporting our appeal

Thank you to all those who have contributed so far to the YEMEN APPEAL.

Between January and July this year, we have raised more than £7,800 through our loyal supporters and network of churches.

Your support has met immediate, practical needs, along with social and emotional support of those affected. This enables our local partners to continue demonstrating the love of Jesus through their words, actions and timely provisions.

On the frontline

‘I and many others are feeling the great pressure that the spread of this virus has added to our lives. But when I search, I find that we, the believers, carry hope that gives us the certainty that tomorrow will be better and that by the will of our Lord we will pass through this and all the anxieties and fears surrounding us.’ Naser*, a Yemeni believer helped by our local partners

Continue making an impact

Praise God for the generosity of the Lord’s people who continue to financially support the work in Yemen in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The appeal is still active and your partnership will enable us to continue making a lasting difference.

Today, your gift will impact lives in Yemen and help those facing crisis after crisis.
