Help Omar Today

Provide life saving food and clean water to families displaced by conflict

Omar was born the year conflict in Yemen began

Salem*, Omar’*s father, has had to move his young family four times since the war began, trying to keep them safe. Conditions in these camps are dire. There isn’t enough food to feed everyone or clean water to keep families safe from disease.

9 years of ongoing conflict has destroyed lives, livelihoods and forced millions of people to flee their homes. As a result, more than 24 million people depend on aid to survive.

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
