Now Ahmad wants to grow this work to help save more lives and relieve the suffering of some of those in greatest need in Yemen. He has set up Yemen Hope and Relief to work as an affiliate partner of Hands International, a well established UK registered charity, which is helping Ahmad with the handling of electronic donations from abroad. Hands International are assisting Ahmad free of any charge, passing on all donations to Ahmad as they become available, and Ahmad does not currently take any salary from this work, only the expenses that are incurred during aid delivery.
To contribute to Ahmad’s efforts to save more children from severe malnutrition and bring some drops of hope to some families, amidst total catastrophe and despair in Yemen, please choose one of the following payment options:
PayPal or Debit/Credit Card, via HANDS International
Yemen Hope and Relief is delighted to have the support of HANDS International, a long established international aid organisation that is registered as a charity in the United Kingdom. HANDS International has offered to help Yemen Hope and Relief with its fund raising activities, to help it get established. You can read HANDS International’s fund raising page for Yemen Hope and Relief here. This is a huge help for us as we are now able to accept donations via PayPal or debit/credit card, through HANDS International’s payment platform here. Just make sure to select ‘Yemen Hope and Relief’ as the campaign option.

Text Message from the UK
Our UK based charity partner HANDS International has kindly provided us the facility to accept donations via text. There is no charge for this facility (other than the usual cost of text). Just text YEMN01 £1 to 70070 (or change the £1 to any amount you would like to donate). Note that it is the number zero (not the letter) after YEMN. Once you have sent the text, you will receive a text confirmation of your donation from HANDS International, and a link to click on should you wish to also ‘gift aid’ your donation.
Western Union or Moneygram direct
Alternatively if you prefer, you can send money directly to Ahmad via either Western Union or Moneygram. For Western Union payments, you have to call in to one of their branches since they are not currently taking payments online for Yemen, you can find your nearest branch here: http://locations.westernunion.com/
The only details you need to make a payment via Western Union or Moneygram are Ahmad’s name, the amount, and the country to which is being sent. If location is asked for you may specify ‘Sanaa’.
Send to: Ahmad Abdulatef Hasan Algohbary
Once the transaction has been completed, so that he can pick up the funds in Yemen you will need to notify Ahmad of:
- the transaction number;
- the amount sent;
- the name of sender;
- the country from which it was sent.
Please send this information to email@example.com and if possible please tweet a direct message to @AhmadAlgohbary and/or @JamilaHanan so that we can confirm receipt. (Don’t worry if you are not on Twitter, we will be checking emails anyway, just it may take a little longer for us to respond).
Please note, with all payment options, either by PayPal, debit/credit card, or money transfer, transaction fees will be incurred. Money transfer into Yemen is quite expensive, but there is just no way around this. If anyone would like to make a bank transfer donation via Hands International then please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org for account details. Thank-you for your support.
