Water For Yemen
Millions are without clean safe drinking water.
Water For Yemen Appeal
In Yemen, a lack of infrastructure due to the ongoing war means that natural water sources are very difficult to access. As the population increases, 50% of the population struggle to find enough clean water daily to survive. Wells cost thousands of pounds to build and with on-going shelling, there is no guarantee a well will survive once built. 70% of Yemenis live in rural areas with no access to a state-run water supply, meaning many of them drink and cook with dirty water as there is simply no alternative – causing the largest outbreaks of cholera the modern world has witnessed.

Sometimes your youngest gets severe stomach cramps, each time you worry if this is the onset of chronic or fatal disease, as you can’t afford hospital treatment. Everyday is a choice between dining of thirst or risking our lives by consuming dirty water. What will we say, when we are asked what we did to protect the people of Yemen if we just watch as they perish? Prevent another life being lost today and click donate now.
