Humanity is Dying
- In Yemen, with a population of about 29 million, more than 8 million people are facing the danger of starvation due to civil war. Over 2.000 people have lost their lives due to cholera outbreaks within this year in the country where there is a trouble in accessing health services.
- There are 6 million people in need in Somalia, where famine and drought have occurred. 7 out of every 10 people are under the risk of inability to access fresh water and hygiene facilities.
- Children with nutritional deficiencies within Eastern Guta are in need of therapy at once in order to survive. Delivery of basic supplies to Eastern Guta, where 400 thousand people live, is of vital importance.
- It is estimated that 10 thousand people per day enter Bangladesh by having to migrate from Arakan. In the refugee camps in Bangladesh, infectious diseases are spreading due to lack of hygiene and foul drinking water.

What do We do?
As Yeryüzü Doktorları, we went to more than 40 countries. We witnessed so much pain. We have seen that not everywhere in the world is equal in terms of access to health facilities.
Due to this inequality, we realized thousands of examinations, surgeries and provided medicines and hygiene kits. For example, we provided nutrition therapy to thousands of people affected from the hunger crisis in our nutrition centres in Yemen; and distributed water purification tablets to prevent the spread of cholera. In Somalia, we provided food support for 80 thousand peoples and opened water wells this year. We have launched a nutrition program, under the supervision of specialists, in the eastern Guta region of Syria, for mothers and children suffering from hunger. In Bangladesh, we distributed hygiene kits to prevent infectious diseases caused by inadequacy of hygiene in refugee camps.
So, thanks to the goodness we receive from you, we were able to touch thousands of lives and we continue to touch.
