Numerous diseases are already endemic in Yemen and years of civil war has displaced millions. More than 24 million Yemenis – 80% of the population – are in need of humanitarian assistance. Half of the country’s health facilities are dysfunctional and nearly a quarter of the country’s districts have no doctors.
The UN is warning that the international community is in a race against time to save Yemen, ravaged by years of man-made famine and war, now also seeing some of the highest mortality rates because of COVID-19. The UN says 17 per cent of those infected there are dying, and doctors warn a silent disaster is unfolding in the community.
According to Sky news, Coronavirus will ‘delete Yemen from maps all over the world’.
Sameera Foundation purchased 14,000 surgical masks, PP+PE Overalls, Finger pulse oximeter and Laser thermometers for hospital in Yemen. The items are purchased from China and will be sent to Alsdaka Hospital, Adden.
The donations received are presented in the table:
