‘Be the Hope for Yemen’ The Umuda Koşanlar Foundation

Humanitarian aid was delivered by the Umuda Koşanlar Foundation to the Yemeni people struggling to live under the shadow of war and conflicts. Since 2015, Yemen has been devastated by a civil war. As a result of this war the country is facing a famine crisis; today, more than 17 million Yemenis – two thirds of the population – are food insecure. These people are in desperate need of security, education, health, and shelter. Since the civil war has started, more than 30 thousand civilians have been killed. Thousands more have died from preventable causes, including malnutrition, disease and poor health conditions. Medics have struggled to treat the world’s biggest cholera outbreak, which has resulted in more than 1.2 million suspected cases of the disease, with 2.500 related deaths already since  April 2017. The war has also forced people to flee their homes. The Umuda Koşanlar Foundation which continues to deliver aid materials to Yemen supplied sugar, bread, flour, rice, milk, canned and cleaning materials for almost 3500 people. The head of the foundation, Gamze Özçelik, has stated that ‘’Every ten minutes, a child dies in Yemen and millions of people are in need of appeal. We’re going to continue helping them by supplying medical aid, cleaning materials and food.’’
