By the time we brew and drink a cup of coffee, a child in Yemen, can lose his or her life to starvation.
I have started the “coffee 4 Yemen” initiative to raise awareness and funds to support internally displaced people in Yemen. Yemen is known to be the homeland of coffee and Yemenis were the first people to prepare coffee as a drink, and hence, I hope that the Traditional Arabic Coffee workshops can act as a bridge to bring attention to the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

Already one of the biggest humanitarian crises of our time, the effects of COVID-19, including a lack of international aid support and difficulties delivering physical aid, means millions are at risk of famine and starvation. Over 3.6 million Yeminis have been forced to flee their homes since the start of the conflict, the majority of whom are now living in makeshift shelters, tents, repurposed public buildings or basic temporary accommodation. Many face desperate conditions and struggle to survive as they search for safety, shelter and emergency aid. 80% of people live below the poverty line and 24 million people need some type of aid. During this challenging time, UNHCR is continuing to deliver one-off-cash grants to the most vulnerable families to pay for shelter, food or medicine.
All funds raised through this initiative will be donated to UNHCR in support of Yemeni families forced to flee.
Donate to help save a life, #EverySecondCounts in making an impact.
