Help provide 35 Solar Powered Water Wells in Yemen
After raising nearly £400,000 in 4 weeks to provide food packs to families in Yemen, the UK 2 Yemen team are now going a step-further. We are now on a mission to provide clean drinking water solutions to needy communities across Yemen and we need your incredible support once again.
This devastating humanitarian crisis in Yemen has, for years, gone largely unnoticed. But the world can’t afford inaction any longer — too many lives are at risk.
19.3 million Yemenis struggle daily to access clean water and sanitation. Of these, 50 per cent have been directly cut off from this basic necessity of life.
As of July 2020, more than 24 million people within the country are in need of humanitarian assistance.
Yemen is the poorest country in the Middle East, torn apart by conflict and gripped by hunger. People are struggling to survive, severe outbreaks of COVID‑19, cholera and other communicable diseases are ongoing, and the risk of famine looms.
With your support we can make a difference. Each Solar Water Well costs just £3500 to install and will serve communities for more than a decade.
