Event description

Description

Join UMR & Pure Hands, for a Benefit Dinner for the people of Yemen on Saturday, November 17th at 6:30 pm.

Guest Speakers:
Imam Siraj Wahhaj & Dr. Debbie Almontaser

In Yemen, 130 innocent children are dying every single day. Streets have been reduced to rubble by endless airstrikes and the specter of cholera hangs over a devastated landscape. There are currently 10,000 suspected cholera cases reported per week, and over 2,500 people have died from the cholera outbreak since April last year.

Time is running out for the people of Yemen

8.4 million people in Yemen are facing starvation. 70% of the population are completely reliant on food aid, and without it, they will waste away. This is a man-made humanitarian catastrophe, and every day that passes sees more suffering, more heartbreak and more death.

Life is a waking nightmare for civilians living in the makeshift desert settlements, struggling to survive without food, clean water or basic medical care. Small children lie limply in their mothers’ arms, their bellies swollen with malnutrition, too weak with hunger even to cry out.
