The cause


We all know what’s happening in Yemen today, and every day. The war, now in its 6th year, has torn the country apart and completely destroyed countless lives, displacing and driving millions of people from their homes.


It’s the world’s biggest humanitarian emergency. 2 in 3 Yemenis can't afford to buy food.[i]


A lesser known fact about Yemen is that it was already hosting hundreds of thousands of refugees before the war. More than a quarter of a million people[ii] have fled to Yemen from countries around the Horn of Africa affected by conflict, famine, and natural disasters. Now, those people are in even greater danger than before.


Ethar Relief is a key provider of life-saving support for thousands of Eritrean refugees and Yemeni displaced people in the camps of Kharaz and the Al Khokha region. With your help, we provide them with the essential basics for survival:

    1.       Family food packs which last a month

    2.       Mobile clean water distribution

    3.       Medicine and treatment for injuries and diseases


Now more than ever, they need your help!

Be like Taha

Taha is a just regular guy living and working in London. But is he? He heard about The Great Yemen Race and decided to do an amazing thing.


He’s going to be cycling the distance of the whole of Yemen, end to end! What a guy!

Follow Taha

Naturally, he can’t do this across Yemen itself, so he’ll be cycling the equivalent mileage across the UK and tracking his progress with a [mini-vlog]. We hope his trusty bike holds up, and his legs as well.
