Yemen is in the midst of a humanitarian and developmental crisis. With 24.1 million people – 80 per cent of the population, in need of humanitarian aid and protection, it is now the largest humanitarian crisis in the world (UNITED NATIONS)

Human Needs development (HND) is a Yemeni non-profit organisation situated in Sanaa, Yemen's capital. Established in 2016 and aimed at assisting the poor and disenfranchised by providing necessities, such as food, water, education, and healthcare.

HND collaborates with local partners to maximise their knowledge and experience. HND's partners span from local community organisations to nationwide alliances dedicated to providing the necessities of life to all. We are continuously looking for new solutions and attempting to maximise the impact of our resources.

New Project: Solar Energy Program

Welfare Aid is collaborating with local community members in Sydney, Australia, to raise funds and support HND's solar energy program project.

The organisation intends to build skills and accredit young men from impoverished and disadvantaged Yemeni communities through the solar energy apprenticeship.

The graduates will be able to offer their services including installing and maintaining solar systems as well as identifying and resolving any problems.

These skills are crucial for Yemen, particularly now that the blockade and conflict have intensified, and most Sanaa homes are powered by solar energy.
