In response to the critical situation in Yemen, Islamic Relief and the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) have launched an emergency appeal for Yemen. A series of emergency fundraising events have been organized to take place in London and Leicester where both charities will be raising funds and sending a lifeline to our brothers and sisters in Yemen.
The poorest country in the Middle East, Yemen has been torn apart by 2 years of conflict and millions of innocents, trapped in the grips of war are now facing famine.
A staggering 7 million people are on the brink of starvation. They do not know when or from where their next meal will come.
The series of emergency fundraising events will continue through the period: 27 December – 2nd January, including eye witness accounts of the reality on the ground, and guest appearances from Zain Bhikha and Dawud Wharnsby.
