Yemen Winter Emergency:
Battling Freezing Winters in the Face of Hardship
As the scorching Yemeni summer gives way to harsh, freezing winters, the transition becomes a perilous journey for many.
Penny Appeal's Winter Emergency campaign provides a lifeline for the people of Yemen, by the grace of Allah, SWT, especially those in highland areas, as they confront the challenges of extreme weather conditions and the looming spectre of homelessness.
An Ongoing Crisis in the Midst of Winter
Yemen remains one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises, with 70% of its population (21.6 million people) relying on humanitarian aid to survive. Children make up a large portion of that heartbreaking statistic: over 11 million children are in desperate need of assistance.
Winter brings new challenges: the sharp drop in temperature is extremely dangerous, especially among the 3.8million homeless.
Penny Appeal is on the ground in Yemen this winter and every winter, providing blankets, warm clothes, fuel, tents, and emergency essentials.
This winter, you can bring warmth and hope to families who have lost everything.
The winter freeze comes as an additional blow to a population already burdened by years of immense hardships, including conflict, economic crisis, soaring living costs, and the loss of livelihoods.
Penny Appeal is committed to making a meaningful impact in Yemen during this Winter Emergency. With your support, we will:
Provide Warmth and Shelter: Distribute vital winter supplies, including warm clothing, blankets, and heating essentials, to protect against the freezing temperatures.
Combat Homelessness: Work towards alleviating homelessness by constructing safe and insulated shelters, offering refuge from the biting cold.
Aid Children and Families: Extend support to the 11 million children and their families by providing essential humanitarian aid, educational resources, and access to necessities.
Join us in making a significant impact on the lives of those affected by the ongoing crisis in Yemen. Your generosity can bring warmth, security, and comfort to families who are in desperate need. Together, we can ensure that this winter is a season of hope and healing for all.
Penny Appeal will endeavour to use your gift as requested, wherever possible. If for any reason we cannot use your donation as you have indicated, we will use it to fund similar projects in other countries or other projects in the relevant country. Penny Appeal’s strategic overview and on the ground experience means it is in the best position to decide how to meet need as it arises.
