Yemen Hope and Relief

Yemen Hope and Relief is founded by Ahmad Algohbary who, having lost many of his friends to the war in Yemen, and especially his best friend, felt he had nothing left to live for, until he started to help others.

At first Ahmad began to go out with his camera visiting the people suffering in Yemen, to capture real life stories and share them with the world.

When Ahmad began to tweet the stories of suffering, people started to offer to send money to help those people in his stories, which marked the start of Ahmad’s aid efforts.

This is a project of HANDS International, a UK registered charity.

For Rohingya living in the camps of Bangladesh, life consists of handouts. Restricted to their camps, their rights as refugees are not recognised. They are prevented from receiving education much beyond primary level, and also from employment in the formal sector.
The distress of fleeing their home country in the circumstances they did is exacerbated by the conditions Rohingya face in Bangladesh. Hopes of rehabilitation and attempts to rebuild their lives are therefore severely constrained.

Support Rohingya Orphans

Life in the refugee camps of Bangladesh is extremely challenging. For children, who make up more than half of the refugee population, it is even more so.

Rohingya children have suffered profound trauma having witnessed the slaughter of their community in Myanmar in 2017. Now in the camps of Bangladesh, education is severely restricted and there is no formal education for hundreds of thousands of children. Malnutrition also exists and even as late as last year malnutrition remained at emergency levels especially for younger children. 

The conditions in the camps are dangerous. Children have little access to child friendly spaces. They face serious protection risks including child labour, trafficking and child marriage.

Many of the children are orphans. Their parents were killed in August of 2017. Some have found shelter with relatives. Others have been adopted by community members. This appeals aims to help these children with their education and also some family support, including supplementing the meagre food rations they receive.

Most Rohingya refugees are children       Donate
