Save Children in Yemen
Help Save Children in Yemen
As the war in Yemen enters its fourth year – children in Yemen are facing a massive crisis. The volatile civil war, taking place in the midst of growing poverty, is causing the world’s worst humanitarian emergency. As the conflict rages on, the needs of vulnerable children continue to grow. Over 22 million people – three out of every four – urgently need lifesaving assistance, including over 11 million children.
Children in Yemen now face a triple threat – hunger, disease and bombs. Reports of a new attack on the port city of Hodeidah have put an estimated 300,000 children at further risk of being killed or maimed by fighting. Yemen could also be on the brink of a deadly new cholera epidemic that could affect thousands of people in the coming weeks unless urgent action is taken.
Save the Children is on the ground, working to help the most vulnerable survive and stay safe. We’ve treated nearly 100,000 children suffering from malnutrition, and we’re operating mobile health clinics in the hardest-to-reach areas. Together, we can save Yemen’s children under threat.
