What We've Achieved
Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation is a registered charitable non-profit organization in the State of Washington. We have a large network of volunteers throughout Yemen. Our organization has no overhead and our staff are volunteers. All funds raised are used to provide relief services in Yemen in diverse locations and in hard to reach areas. Since the war started in Yemen in 2015, we have provided thousands of families with food baskets, meals and hundreds of people with blankets during the winter. With your help, we’ve supplied hundreds of school children with school bags and uniforms and hundreds of children with new Eid clothes. We also distributed water filters to families to control the largest cholera outbreak in modern history.
