Help Omar Today

Make a donation today to provide life-saving food and clean water to families displaced by conflict

Right now, families like Omar’s depend on aid to survive

Omar was born the year conflict in Yemen began. When Omar*’s siblings were growing up, their family lived in a house surrounded by crops to eat, doctors to treat sickness and a stable community. They were safe. But that all changed in 2015, the year conflict broke out in Yemen — and the year Omar was born.

Omar has only ever known war and displacement. Salem*, Omar’s father, has had to move his young family four times since the war began, trying to keep them safe. They now live in a camp for people displaced by conflict, where conditions are dire. Vicious storms tear apart their tents. There isn’t enough food to feed everyone or clean water to keep families safe from disease.

I live with fear about my family and my family sleep and wake up frightened…
I wish they have a better life not the life we live together now…
I feel sad when I can’t provide what they need.
Salem, Omar’s father
