Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation

Changing Lives

YRRF provides help and support to the neediest families in Yemen who have suffered from a devastating war since 2015. With our extensive network of local volunteers across Yemen, we are able to reach those living not only in urban areas, but also remote inaccessible villages, areas with active fighting, and refugee camps, and makeshift shelters, where an estimated 3.1 million displaced persons now live. Our services cover most basic needs — including food, clean water, medicine, education, and economic support.

Featured Project

Water Aid & Renewable Power Systems for Yemen

Diarrheal diseases are a leading cause of morbidity in Yemen, where the largest cholera outbreak — 2 million impacted — in modern history is unfolding. About 18 million Yemeni people lack access to safe drinking water and sanitation. Frequent cuts in electricity compromise healthcare and clinics must rely on generators, and struggle to find scarce and costly diesel fuel resources.

Our Water Purification and Renewable Energy System project aims to bring solar powered water purification systems to three hospitals in Yemen. The project will install 4,000 watts of compact, flexible, adhesive solar panels with a battery bank to power a compact, easy-to-use water purification system that can produce  clean drinking and desalinate hard water— serving about 1,000 people in each community.
