The people of Yemen are subject to the turbulent conditions in the region. Internal conflict and military actions have created a state of disorder and chaos. The Yemeni people suffer from a lack of basic items and necessary medical supplies.
The current circumstances have made drought and famine inevitable in the near future, according to experts. Many relief camps are overcrowded and under supplied.
The number of active schools and hospitals has dwindled due to conflict, disuse and lack of supplies. Many children do not have access to education and medical aid.
Human Concern International is working hard to maintain a prominent presence in the region. Supplying the victims of the conflict with food security, medicinal needs and educational provisions. Offering a complete annual package to children in dire need of support.
This is an urgent plea to contribute towards effectively supporting the people and help give relief where needed.
Your help is a big part of making a big change in the world.
GIVE NOW AND SAVE LIVES!
A Few Words From Omar Suleiman
How To Help?
Your donation can properly feed a family for a month
Your donation can feed two families for a whole month
Your donation can provide urgent medical aid to the sick & vulnerable
In any emergency situation, HCI follows these steps:
- Conduct a needs assessment which will determine the extent of the disaster, what the people affected need in the short and long term, and who exactly HCI can help.
- Begin the first phase of relief titled Emergency Relief, which is the provision of basic necessities, such as food and water, hygiene items, andtemporary/transitional shelter setups (e.g. tents). In this phase we also provide basic health assistance through the provision of medical supplies and/or medicine.
- Begin the second phase of relief titled Early Recovery, which involves (re)building of permanent housing and providing cash assistance so that families can return to their homes, and children can return to school.
- Begin the third phase of relief titled Community Development, which involves investing in restoring health systems, providing psychosocial support and trauma relief, and working with the community to rebuild infrastructure and social systems.
In general, HCI’s admin fee on an annual basis is 10-15%. In emergency crisis situations, we may declare 0% admin.
No we cannot do this. We also cannot accept a list of people to help. This is against CRA rules and regulations for how a charity should operate.
We first begin with our needs assessment and start phase one as quickly as possible. Funds are sent based on the reports we receive from the ground. Our intention is not to hold on to funds, but rather to make sure that before they are sent, there is a proper plan for distribution in place. For this reason, we cannot give an exact timeline, but we try to get the funds out as soon as possible.
We believe in working hand in hand with the local community. For this reason, we may often rely on the expertise of a local NGO to conduct the needs assessment, provide us with feedback, and carry out the distribution on our behalf. These are NGO’s that are well established and have a track record for implementing humanitarian aid projects.
HCI regularly publishes impact reports and provides them to the public. Also, donors to a specific campaign are sent these reports directly once they’re made available. You can visit humanconcern.org/reports for reports on Ramadan, Qurbani, Winter relief, and other emergencies.
