Food, water and health are resources we take for granted. Overlooked, yet the essential means of survival for all living beings on this planet. Mahatma Ghandi survived 21 days from complete starvation. But water was an indispensable aspect of his survival. It is said we can survive just over three weeks without food and a maximum of one week without water (in cool relaxed environments), otherwise heat, activity and illnesses can reduce one week down two or three days.
22.7 million which is a staggering 80% of the Yemeni population are relying entirely on humanitarian aid. This is not a number to be taken lightly as it is almost an entire country on life support. A warning of mass deaths has been echoed to the world as an overwhelming 14 million of the population are on the brink of famine. To die from starvation, the word agony and pain does not do justice as the body begins to eat its own organs until it reaches the heart just to survive. To die from self-cannibalisation that you have no control over is a saddening and painful way to meet your end and no child nor weak should ever have to go through this. This has shocked the world and caused Yemen to be the world’s worst humanitarian crises.
SHOULD WE HELP?
It should be compulsory that we as humans love for others what we love for ourselves. To watch an entire country suffer this harshly and for us to do nothing as a global community is unacceptable. Therefore, we at Saba Relief work hard to solve the problems faced by the poor and needy in Yemen. We aim to give hope, life and happiness to a country who have been and still are suffering such unbearable extremities. However, we cannot do this without your help and support through your generous donations.
HELPING THE NEEDY THROUGH COLLECTIVE SMILES
Rather than just asking for your donation, we chose to gather donations through a social event, where families can enjoy a night out with their loved ones and have a good time whilst supporting those in need in Yemen. SABA Relief proudly present this year’s charity dinner which will be hosted on Saturday the 8th of December at AL Miraj Banquet between 6:00PM – 10:00PM. A selection of great talents and learned scholars will be there to entertain, remind and bring smiles to the guests and families of this event. We believe helping the needy can also be fun, interactive and entertaining whilst serving a good cause.
