Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation

Why Yemen?

In 2014, war broke out in Yemen—one of the poorest countries in the Middle East. The war has created the world’s largest humanitarian crisis in Yemen, as well as the largest outbreak of cholera in modern history. According to the United Nations and Save the Children: 80% of the population need of humanitarian aid, 20.1M are food insecure, 14M people are in acute need, 3M people have been displaced, 70% of children don’t have access to clean water, 2M children are out of school, and 10.3M children don’t have enough food to eat.


YRRF provides help and support to the neediest families in Yemen. With our extensive network of local volunteers across Yemen, we are able to reach those in urban areas, remote inaccessible villages, refugee camps, and shelters.

Our services cover most basic needs—including food, clean water, medicine, education, and economic support. YRRF also advocates for a just peace in Yemen and advocates for end to the war. We are fully supported by volunteers, including board members and staff.
