Shamayun Miah

Hello there, I’m Shamayun Miah and sharing my great experiences of fundraising which we’ve done for the children of Yemen.

On a cold, dark and wet December day in 2020 we, a group of amateur newbie cycling enthusiasts, successfully completed the 102 kilometre bike ride from London to Brighton. We started in high spirits from Camden town and tackled all the many testing climbs with irreconcilable gusto and dread. I’d heard it would take a new rider anything between six and ten hours to complete. Well, we did it, the ride was conquered perfectly within 9:43 minutes. Perseverance pays. Mind over matter is my life’s motto. So even though the training beforehand was a little sketchy I always knew I’d see it to the end.

We surpassed our fundraising target for the children of Yemen, raising a total of £7,500. Thank you to all for your very generous donations.

I remind everyone that Yemen is six years into an armed conflict that has killed and injured over 18,400 civilians; it remains the largest humanitarian crisis in the world. Yemen is experiencing the world’s worst food crisis, with 20.1 million people—nearly two-thirds of the population—requiring food assistance. I’m Shamayun Miah, I am a father too and it is my belief all children should have, as birthright, access to water, food and medical treatment. This conviction has spurred me to do the little I can, in my own way, to make a difference to the lives of a handful of children.

There are lots of great charities out there, please get involved, promote, and donate generously to help alleviate the suffering of the people of Yemen.

Humanitarian crisis:

What can I do to help the People of Yemen?

The humanitarian crisis in Yemen has increased widespread discussion in recent months. The conflict in the region has seen the influx of tens of thousands of refugees into Yemen from East Africa. The medical advisory group have warned that malnutrition is on the rise in Yemen. 
Some steps we can take to help the people in Yemen are;
  • We can provide medical aid to the vulnerable and sick of the affected regions.
  • We can provide them with medical equipment to make it easier to get first aid treatment.
  • Yemeni people have lost access to food, shelter, and other basic need. We can help them by providing food and shelter.
  • We must make sure the supply of fresh and clean water for them.
  • They need clean and safe sanitation facilities to ensure safe living.
Yemen’s situation is deteriorating. Yemeni conditions, a country of 29 million people engulfed in a civil conflict since March 2015, are worse by the day. They require immediate and ongoing humanitarian aid. We can assist them by giving to organizations that deal with humanitarian emergencies. The goal of such groups is to provide food and shelter to the afflicted area. Furthermore, the United Nations strives to assist individuals in dealing with hunger and drought.
The UN has always been a source of hope to the people in need. The UN has decided to adopt a new approach because of the challenges faced due to drought and famine. The UN has created an organization by the name of Focus on the Forgotten. This organization is location-based, and its purpose is to help the people who need the help the most.
Yemenis require medical aid to overcome this obstacle since the country is running out of food, medication, energy, gasoline, water, and other necessities. As a result, we must offer medical and nutritional support. We must take action to prevent the situation from deteriorating. The terrible situation in Yemen is ongoing, with millions of people now at risk of famine. The focus must be on providing relief to those who are hardest hit. If you would like to help, please consider donating now.

The threatening humanitarian catastrophe has impacted millions, and over 233,000 men, women and children have died. Please get involved and give donations and help make a difference. Yes, every single donation can make a difference. That is the only way we can help the people in Yemen at this moment.
