It has been four years since the start of the Yemen crisis. In these four years more than 17,500 civilians have been killed and injured since 2015, and a quarter of all civilians killed in air raids were women and children. Violence against women has increased and women are overall more severely affected than men. 24.1 million people—80% of the population—are “at risk” of hunger and disease. More than 40% of Yemeni household have lost their primary income and are unable to buy even bare minimum of food.
An estimated 17.8 million people are without safe water and sanitation, and 19.7 million without adequate healthcare. Around 2 million children under 5 years old are suffering from acute malnutrition and require treatment. The damage and closure of schools and hospitals has disrupted access to education and health services, leaving children even more vulnerable and robbing them of their futures.
We are doing everything we can to reach the most vulnerable as the crisis worsens. But there is a limit to what we can do without more support. These people urgently need your key support to survive.
We are providing:
- Clean water
- Urgent medical supplies
- Treatment in response to cholera, diphtheria and deadly diseases
- Treatment for acute malnutrition in children
The Yeminis are urgently requiring help from us. They wait for help as their only help. Your donation can go a long way. We need you.
