Millions of people across Yemen are in critical need of aid in order to survive in a country where the economy has largely collapsed, basic services struggle to function, and social safety nets are strained. Many of the patients we treat, and the families of the medical staff with whom we work, have lost their livelihoods and face illness, rising prices, and shortages of essentials, including food, fuel, and electricity. -from MSF's website update
Targeting a Donation to Yemen
While it is possible to have your gift directed toward a specific program or country, MSF asks that you contribute unrestricted funding. By not restricting your contribution for a specific emergency or project, you will enable us to allocate our resources more efficiently and where the needs are greatest.
Should you still wish to restrict your donation please indicate the specific program or country when making your contribution (Yemen). In order to restrict an online donation, you must send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org after your transaction is complete. In your email, please tell us to which country or program you would like the funds directed. Please include your name, full address, the amount of your donation, and your donation confirmation number so that we can locate your record. Make an Online Donation
