Yemen 21.09.2011

For a while, the foundation has been carrying out emergency relief efforts in the country which has been the scene of anti-government protests over the past eight months. The Yemeni military is continuing operations to crack down on the anti-government protestors.

Yemen, bordered by Saudi Arabia to the north, the Red Sea to the west, and Oman to the east, has a predominantly Muslim population. There are social problems and political instability in the country due to the ongoing civil war.

Violence between the security forces and anti-government protestors in Sanaa is increasing day by day. Despite interventions from the security forces, Yemeni protestors are refusing to leave the “Change Square.” Those who are injured in the demonstrations are treated at the medical centers close to the Change Square; however, the medical center lacks the necessary medical equipments for the emergency treatment of the injured. The X-ray machine donated by the IHH to the medical center in Yemen will make the treatment process of the injured more speedy.
