Twitter Brought Fatik Al-Rodaini and Dr. R.S. Karim together, friends who had either experienced or seen poverty first hand to discuss about the situation in Yemen, the most impoverished country in the Middle East with 90% of their food being imported.
With a single intent and single goal, an idea was conceived. An idea to somehow go around the current Blockade on Yemen and help people who are displaced by war. With that idea the #20ForYemen project was started on Twitter.
Our name: Mona has a story of its own, Mona is the name of the lady who donated the very first $1000 for us to begin our first delivery of food to IDP's (Internally displaced persons) Mona's generosity and spirit of humanity was infectious, she exuded of positivity and compassion. This was the point when we decided we were going to name our organization Mona because she exemplifies everything that is good about this world.
Armed with relentless passion and the ability to focus on helping others Mona started operations.
To date Mona Relief has delivered 1.6 Million meals to internally Displaced People in Northern Yemen.
