Our Programs in Yemen
Provides food to over 3000 people every day. The bakery provides reusable cloth bags for families to pick up their daily bread and food items. Deliveries to refugee camps and schools are also made to help end hunger.
UHF provided dedicated clean water to direly needed communities throughout Yemen. Tanks are refilled 2-3 times a week to provide areas that are in most need with clean drinking water.
Our team in Yemen has built 30 homes in Hudayda to families that are in most need of them. We have been granted land that would provide us with the opportunity to build 75 more homes (with funding).
