Yemen needs your help.
In lieu of 18th birthday gifts, I hope you will donate to help the millions of Yemeni people suffering in the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.
My birthday is October 28, so please spread the word! Help me reach the goal of $1,000 and thank you for considering.
A child under the age of five dies every ten minutes in Yemen, yet it doesn’t make the news. Cholera, Covid-19, civil war, lack of food and water, and numerous other issues have become the norm for over 24 million Yemeni people (about 80% of the population). The current humanitarian crisis in Yemen should be a rude awakening for all of us.
I started Youth for Yemen this past summer in an effort to educate young people about the harsh realities of this humanitarian crisis and encourage everyone to do what they can to provide aid and support to Yemeni people.
Let’s start the conversation about Yemen. Donate today and educate yourself with some of these links:
