Good health is the most important aspect of our lives and it is one of the best rewards that Allah has given us in this Dunnya, as you know that Yemen is one of the poorest country, the shortage of the medicines made it very difficult for the poor in Yemen to survive from lots of illnesses. The roads to the cities for the villages are unsafe and very far in order to reach the hospitals in time if someone is ill. There are lots of illnesses amongst the Yemenis which can be treated very quick and easy, due to poverty of these families they struggle to pay the cost of the medicines, lots of poor and the needy living in outlying areas they suffer from multiple diseases and need permanent treatments and minor operations for their eyes for example.
As part of its humanitarian efforts, SABA Relief provides both financial and in-kind assistance for patients that are hospitalised in different regions of Yemen. We provide needy patients with financial assistance to continue with a treatment that they otherwise could not afford. Our aim is to help as many patients as possible but we urgently need your ongoing financial support to cover the costs of their medication.
When there is a crisis in Yemen, SABA Relief provides humanitarian aid that often includes emergency health care.
Yemen Cholera Crisis
Yemen is facing a major humanitarian crisis. The ongoing conflict has left children and families in urgent need of food, water and medical supplies. And now they are facing a cholera outbreak of unprecedented scale. Now Cholera cases rise to more than 900,000 and it could reach 1 million by the end of 2017 in Yemen. It is the world’s largest outbreak.
The health system is near collapse. 19 million people in Yemen – two thirds of the population – are now in need of humanitarian assistance, and 7 million people do not know where their next meal will come from. The country has now also been hit with a cholera outbreak, malnutrition is widespread and water is scarce.
Cholera is prevented by replacing fluids, often with oral rehydration solutions. These are a mixture of sugars and salts that can be added to water to be consumed by a person who has been infected. Some cases may also need intravenous fluid, and antibiotics can also shorten the duration of the disease. Lack of access to clean water and few established health care resources make treatment more difficult in Yemen.
