Yemen Crisis

27 Feb 2018

Airstrikes, armed clashes and attacks on civilian infrastructure which have been going on since March 2015 have resulted in the world’s largest food security crisis and enabled the spread of cholera at an unprecedented scale. More than half of the Yemeni population is still suffering from deliberate targeting and other apparent violations of International Humanitarian Law. All of this makes the Yemeni crisis one of the world’s largest man-made crises, and one which has displaced over three million...


Rohingya Crisis continues

25 Jan 2018

Rakhine, the poorest region in Myanmar, was home to more than a million Rohingya who have faced decades of persecution in a country, where they are not even considered citizens. The Rohingya are one of the most helpless and forsaken peoples of the world. An ethnic minority disdained by the Burmese public and ignored by the Burmese government, the Rohingya do not have full citizenship rights. Before the most recent mass exodus, about 1.1 million Rohingya lived in apartheid-like conditions in...


Somalia Food Crisis 2017

31 Oct 2017

Somalia teeters on the brink of a devastating famine as a result of an extended drought. Consecutive seasons of poor rainfall have caused the death of three quarters of the county’s livestock which are the main source of income and livelihood for most the population.

Currently, more than 363 000 acutely malnourished children and 70 000...

DRC Health Centre

The Al-Imdaad Foundation officially opened a health centre in the Democratic Republic of Congo on March 18, 2010. The facility is based in Bukavu, capital of the South Kivu province, where political violence since the early 1990s continues unabated.

Idlib Emergency Appeal

11 Sep 2018

Idlib is the final opposition held territory of Syria and home to more than 3 million people more than half of whom are internally displaced persons (IDPs) who have fled from other parts of the country. Hundreds of thousands of civilians could be caught in the crossfire and airstrikes of the looming offensive on Idleb. As many as 700 000 people could rapidly be pushed north to the Turkish border with the intensification of conflict in the area and many could be trapped, with dire humanitarian...
